Here’s a rejected cover idea (submitted to The New Yorker way way back in time) that I’ve brought out on this day a number of times. I remember being happy with the way the checkered floor turned out (heavily inspired by Charles Addams’ handling of tiled floors).

Attempted Bloggery Celebrates Its 2900th Post
Stephen Nadler of Attempted Bloggery celebrates his site’s 2900th post with a look at his signed (and sometimes drawned(?)) copies of Bob Eckstein’s Ultimate Cartoon Book of Book Cartoons. See it all here.
A Correction: In yesterday’s post concerning the Daily Shouts trio of Amy Kurzweil, J.A.K. and Ellis Rosen, I suggested that the trio effort may have been a Shouts first.
There was at least one previous trio: the July 20, 2018 Shouts by Sharon Levy, Olivia de Recat, and Lars Kenseth. My thanks to my colleague, Jeremy Nguyen for bringing this to my attention.
Next week, two events of great interest to New Yorker cartoon aficionados.
On Tuesday, April 23rd, Bob Eckstein’s promotional tour for The Ultimate Cartoon Book of Book Cartoons makes a stop at Word Bookstore. Mr. Eckstein will be joined by fellow New Yorker cartoonists Nick Downes and David Borchart. Mr. Downes began contributing to The New Yorker in 1998. Both Mr. Borchart and Mr. Eckstein began contributing to The New Yorker in 2007.
On April 24th, Mort Gerberg continues his promotional campaign for the recently released Mort Gerberg: On the Scene. He’ll be joined at The New York Historical Society by Garry Trudeau, and New Yorker contributor, Sofia Warren. Mr. Gerberg began contributing to The New Yorker in 1965, Ms. Warren in 2017.
