The most comprehensive collection of New Yorker cartoons published in book form, The New Yorker Encyclopedia of Cartoons is a prodigious, slip-cased, two-volume, 1,600-page A-to-Z treasure! Nearly 3,000 cartoons from 1924 to the present have been curated into more than 250 categories, celebrating signature New Yorker themes and visual tropes including meeting St. Peter, being stranded on a desert island, chatty snowmen, slippery banana peels, Adam and Eve, the Grim Reaper, and (of course) cats and dogs. The result? A hilarious, thoughtful, whimsical journey through The New Yorker's cartoon archives, with commentary by the magazine's former cartoon editor, Bob Mankoff. With a limited printing of 1,000 copies, the Deluxe Edition features 3 signed, numbered limited edition prints in individual portfolios, one each by Mankoff, Bruce Eric Kaplan, and Roz Chast. What a spectacular gift for devoted New Yorker readers.
