A Humor Editors Round-up

From The Writer, June 18, 2018,  “The lords and ladies of LOL. Inside the minds of America’s top humor editors”— the piece includes the New Yorker‘s cartoon editor, Emma Allen. 

— My thanks to author and New Yorker cartoonist, Bob Eckstein for alerting the Spill to this piece.

Better Scans from the New Yorker Encyclopedia of Cartoons

Yesterday I posted some mighty small scans from the upcoming New Yorker Encyclopedia of Cartoons.  Here are two larger images (one courtesy of Mr. Attempted Bloggery, Stephen Nadler).

Stylish packaging…can’t wait to see what more is inside. Especially curious to see how the two volumes incorporate the advertised 3000 cartoons (or “classic images” as the publisher calls them).  Actually, since we now can see 3 classic images (below), curious to see how the other 2997 are incorporated.

Here’s a screenshot of the listing — the deluxe version is at the bottom, sans cover image:
