Attempted Bloggery On Groucho’s Hokinson Festival
Here’s a fun post from Stephen Nadler’s Attempted Bloggery on Groucho Marx’s copy of The Hokinson Festival spotted in a photo.
The Festival, published seven years after Ms. Hokinson’s death, is a great addition to any cartoon library. A bonus: it includes color plates of a few of her sixty-eight New Yorker covers.
[the copy pictured here is not Groucho’s — it’s from the Spill library]
It was announced at yesterday’s virtual National Cartoonists Society Awards that Amy Hwang won in her category. Congratulations to Ms. Hwang! Here’s her Spill A-Z entry:

Bob Eckstein, profiled in Friday’s Times Herald-Record, was on hand, virtually, with two New Yorker colleagues at last night discussing a wide range of cartoon-related topics. If you missed it (or if you want to see it again) go here.
Mr. Eckstein’s soon-to-be-published All’s Fair In Love & War, his third Ultimate Cartoon Book from Princeton Architectural Press, will certainly be on the agenda.
Visit Mr. Eckstein’s website here.
Author Richard Gere’s conversation with the two New Yorker cartoonists is now posted on YouTube. See it here.
