David Langdon’s “Langdon At Large”
Was much fun to find the above scan of David Langdon’s 1958 collection, Langdon At Large awaiting in my inbox this morning, courtesy of Warren Bernard, the executive director of SPX (and author of the terrific, Cartoons For Victory). Mr. Bernard excels at digging up cartoon surprises. Until ten minutes ago I’d never seen the cover of this 61 year old book. As a bonus, the back cover features a photo of Mr. Langdon (that will be added to his entry on the Spill‘s A-Z).
Here’s Mr. Langdon’s entry on the A-Z:
David Langdon born, London, February 24, 1914. His work is perhaps most identified with Punch, where he contributed from 1937 through 1992, when Punch ceased to publish. He was elected to the Punch Table in 1958. New Yorker work: 1945 -1973. Key book: Langdon At Large ( Wingate, 1958)
Today’s Daily Cartoonist: Peter Kuper
Peter Kuper covers the recent USS John McCain brouhaha. Mr. Kuper has been contributing to The New Yorker since 2011. See yesterday’s Spill for more about him.
A correction: I’ve been informed that Mr. Kuper’s Kafka graphic piece will not appear in this Sunday’s New York Times Book Review. The piece will run in the June 9th NYTs Book Review.
