Even More (Charles) Addams Family

It’s an awful lot of fun seeing the recent splurt of ink on “The Addams Family” and the master himself, Charles Addams. The occasion is of course the arrival of the new “Addams Family” animated film.  Here’s a good piece from The Smithsonian, “The Cultural History of ‘The Addams Family'”

— Homebodies was published by Simon & Schuster in 1954.

A Saxon In Stockbridge

If you happen into The Red Lion Inn in Stockbridge, Massachusetts as I did this afternoon, you’ll find an original Charles Saxon drawing hanging on a hallway wall just off the Inn’s pub. According to The New Yorker database it doesn’t appear to have been in the magazine. No matter — it’s a lovely drawing (what Saxon drawing isn’t?).  –photo by Bruce Crocker

Mr. Saxon’s entry on The Spill‘s A-Z:

Charles Saxon (self portrait above left from Best Cartoons of the Year 1947) Born in Brooklyn, Nov 13, 1920, died in Stamford, Conn., Dec 6, 1988. New Yorker work: 1943 – 1991 (2 drawings published posthumously). Key collection: One Man’s Fancy ( Dodd, Mead, 1977).
