Attempted Bloggery Celebrates Its 2900th Post
Stephen Nadler of Attempted Bloggery celebrates his site’s 2900th post with a look at his signed (and sometimes drawned(?)) copies of Bob Eckstein’s Ultimate Cartoon Book of Book Cartoons. See it all here.
A Correction: In yesterday’s post concerning the Daily Shouts trio of Amy Kurzweil, J.A.K. and Ellis Rosen, I suggested that the trio effort may have been a Shouts first.
There was at least one previous trio: theJuly 20, 2018 Shouts by Sharon Levy, Olivia de Recat, and Lars Kenseth. My thanks to my colleague,Jeremy Nguyen for bringing this to my attention.
