Hokinson Covers The Stage, Again; “Stop Thief!” David Sipress’s 2006 New Yorker Cartoon Appropriated; Today’s Daily Cartoonist & Cartoon (And Yesterday’s)

The other day I posted three Helen Hokinson covers for The Stage.  Courtesy of collector extraordinaire, Warren Bernard, I’m now posting a fourth. How many more are out there?

Here’s Ms. Hokinson’s Spill entry:

Helen Hokinson  Born, Illinois,1893; died, Washington, D.C., 1949. New Yorker work: 1925 -1949, with some work published posthumously. All of Hokinson’s collections are wonderful, but here are two favorites. Her first collection: So You’re Going To Buy A Book! (Minton, Balch & Co, 1931) and what was billed as “the final Hokinson collection”: The Hokinson Festival (Dutton & Co., 1956). According to a New Yorker document  produced during Harold Ross’s editorship (1925-1951) rating their artists, Ms. Hokinson and Peter Arno occupied a special category unto themselves above all others.
