From Kentwired.com, March 7, 2018, “Pulitzer Prize Winning Author Art Spiegelman Discusses Politics and Identity” — Maus and more from the celebrated cartoonist who began contributing to The New Yorker in 1992.
Cartoonists & Cookbooks
The Cartoonist Cookbook popped up on an online search yesterday. Published in 1966 by Hobbs, Dorman & Co., it includes 45 favorite recipes by strip cartoonists. I was only able to find a partial list of contributors.* Here’s a short post about the book.
I’m certain that that’s a Virgil Partch drawing in the first column, five squares down on the front cover. Here’s his Spill A-Z entry:
Virgil Partch ( VIP) (pictured above) Born, St. Paul Island, Alaska, 1917; died in a car crash on Interstate 5, north of Los Angeles. California, August 1984. NYer work: six drawings, beginning in November 21, 1942. His last appeared May 3, 1976.
Also showing up online was this Charles Addams cookbook that I somehow missed over the past few years (Simon & Schuster, 2005):
The only thing close to either of these in the Spill‘s library is the below desserts cookbook featuring a Peter Arno cover (but, alas, no recipes by Arno, who liked to cook).
*Thanks to the cartoonist, Eli Stein, we now have the entire list of contributors to the Cartoonist Cook Book. My thanks to Mr. Stein for forwarding.
