Robert Mankoff, cartoon editor of The New Yorker, takes us on an illustrated tour of nearly a century of American cartooning, including the work of such Jewish artists as Saul Steinberg, William Steig, Roz Chast, and Art Spiegelman. He also talks about his own life in cartooning, from a childhood in Queens punctuated by Yiddish phrases, to copying the drawings in pulp magazines as a teenager to the hundreds of cartoons he submitted to The New Yorker before he got one accepted. Mankoff joined the staff of The New Yorker as a cartoonist in 1977 and 20 years later became the cartoon editor. He has now published more than 800 of his own cartoons in the magazine. He is also the editor of The Complete Cartoons of The New Yorker and the creator of The Cartoon Bank, the world’s largest and most influential cartoon licensing business. Mankoff’s most recent book is How About Never – Is Never Good for You?: My Life in Cartoons.+ More... - Less...
