A Soglow Scarf On Attempted Bloggery

Stephen Nadler’s Attempted Bloggery continues its look at cartoon-covered accessories. Today it’s a circus themed scarf by the one and only Otto Soglow. Mr. Soglow began contributing to The New Yorker in 1925. He is fondly remembered for his creation, The Little King.

Here’s Otto Soglow’s entry on the Spill’s A-Z:

Otto Soglow (pictured above) Born, Yorkville, NY, December 23, 1900. Died in NYC, April 1975. New Yorker work: 1925 -1974.Key collections: Pretty Pictures ( Farrar & Rinehart, 1931) and for fans of Soglow’s Little King; The Little King (Farrar & Rinehart, 1933) and The Little King ( John Martin’s House, Inc., 1945). The latter Little King is an illustrated storybook. Cartoon Monarch / Otto Soglow & The Little King (IDW, 2012) is an excellent compendium.

New Yorker Cartoon Collection of Interest: Ice Breakers : A New Yorker Book of Cartoons

The above cover caught my attention when posted on Stephen Nadler’s Attempted Bloggery the other day. There are a lot — a whole lot — of custom New Yorker cartoon collections out there but this one, published in 2005, is as Mr. Nadler notes, slightly different than the others. Read about it here.

Below: The Index Of Artists from Ice Breakers, courtesy of Attempted Bloggery. Usually these Indexes are accurate, but this one has at least one omission (it’s missing one cartoonist — alright, it’s me –whose work is included). When I get hold of a copy I’ll dig into it and see if there are any more).

An Addams Rarity on Attempted Bloggery

Here’s something new to my eyes. Posted this morning on Stephen Nadler’s Attempted Bloggery: a brochure for an exhibit of Addams work at the National Academy of Design in the Fall of 1991. Mr. Nadler informs us:  “…in more than a quarter century since the show, no one else has posted this leaflet on the internet…so I thought I’d take the liberty.” See the entire piece here (it includes an essay by Adam Gopnik and a short intro by the exhibit’s curator, Barbara Nicholls).
