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.

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:

Link To Eckstein & Co. At Milford Readers & Writers Festival

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.
