More on…A Mile and a Half of Lines: The Art of James Thurber 

A review copy — in pdf — of the upcoming Thurber title shown above has reached the Spill‘s headquarters. Michael Rosen, who put it all together (i.e., edited it) has done a grand slam job. Thurberites and fans of New Yorker cartoon art will be thrilled by the large number of previously unpublished drawings, and accompanying text. More details will follow as allowed.

A Mile an a Half of Lines will be out July 12th.  The Ohio State University Press is the publisher.

[full disclosure: My wife, Liza Donnelly, and I are contributors to the book].

The Monday Tilley Watch, The New Yorker Issue Of April 15, 2019; Book Events Of Interest This Week…And A Live Podcast Of Interest; Today’s Daily Cartoonist: Lila Ash; Today’s Daily Shouts By J.A.K. & Julia Rothman

The Cover: Play ball!…or…ball in play!  A graphically pleasing cover by Mark Ulriksen.  Read about it here

The Cartoonists:

Note: Brooke Bourgeois is making her New Yorker print debut. Ms. Bourgeois is the 7th new cartoonist added to the stable this year and the 31st added under cartoon editor Emma Allen’s watch.

The Cartoons:  The Spill spotlight falls on three of this week’s cartoons.

Lars Kenseth‘s couple on a stroll (p. 37). Cat’s been out of the bag since a summer of 2017 Spill piece that I’m a fan of Mr. Kenseth’s Deodorant roll-on people. I simply like seeing them, and enjoy the world they inhabit. In this particular drawing the triangular pockets on the fellow’s shirt add to the Kenseth-world fun. 

Jose Arroyo‘s UFO drawing (p.56). I love a good UFO drawing. This is an excellent addition to the canon. The drawing of the fellow being taken up into the spaceship is terrific, as is the caption. 

Ed Steed‘s Repair Shop (p.51).  Mr. Steed goes basic here, and it works beautifully.

The Illustrations (used as an umbrella term to cover drawings and photographs): I’ll just say there are a lot, including 5 1/2 full pages. 

Lastly: No, Rea Irvin’s iconic Talk masthead has not yet returned. Below, the real deal.
