The second in a series (the first: The Ultimate Cartoon Book of Book Cartoons), Everyone’s A Critic: The Ultimate Cartoon Book, edited by Bob Eckstein, published by Princeton Architectural Press, will be available October 22nd.
From the publisher: We are all critics now. From social media “likes” to reviews on Yelp and Rotten Tomatoes, we’re constantly asked to give our opinion and offer feedback. Everyone’s a Critic is a curated collection of the best and brightest New Yorker cartoonists celebrating the art of the drawn critique, whether about restaurants, art, sports, dates, friends, or modern life. Featuring the work of thirty-six masters of the cartoon, including Roz Chast, Sam Gross, Nick Downes, Liza Donnelly, Bob Mankoff, Michael Maslin, and Mick Stevens, over half the cartoons in this book appear in print for the first time.
