This monumental, two-volume, slip-cased collection includes nearly 10 decades worth ofNew Yorkercartoons selected and organized by subject with insightful commentary by Bob Mankoff and a foreword by David Remnick.

The is the most ingenious collection ofNew Yorkercartoons published in book form,The New Yorker Encyclopedia of Cartoonsis a prodigious, slip-cased, two-volume, 1,600-page A-to-Z curation of cartoons from the magazine from 1924 to the present. Mankoff--for two decades the cartoon editor of theNew Yorker--organizes nearly 3,000 cartoons into more than 250 categories of recurringNew Yorkerthemes and visual tropes, including cartoons on banana peels, meeting St. Peter, being stranded on a desert island, snowmen, lion tamers, Adam and Eve, the Grim Reaper, and dogs, of course. The result is hilarious and Mankoff''s commentary throughout adds both depth and whimsy. The collection also includes a foreword byNew Yorkereditor David Remnick. This is stunning gift for the millions ofNew Yorkerreadersand anyone looking for some humor in the evolution of social commentary.
