This week’s New Yorker (issue dated June 30, 2014) contains a Postscript written by the magazine’s editor, David Remnick. The piece, spread across the magazine’s gutter, includes four Barsotti drawings. Of Barsotti’s work, Remnick writes (in part):
In his peculiarly enchanted kingdom, any being or object was capable of speech and wit: there were talking noodles, boxes, fruit, squirrels, hammers, and bowling pins. He was astonishingly productive. At the end, there were many dozens of drawings available to us, and while we will miss him, we will be publishing Charley Barsotti for a long time to come.
