Format: Hardcover
Long before I ever picked up a copy of "The New Yorker," I knew about the fact that it was a treasure trove of cartoons. My father had a hardcover collection of choice cartoons culled from the first four decades of the magazine's history and that was where I met the original Addams family drawn by "Chas. Addams," the twisted looks at the world of by William Steig, Peter Arno, Robert J. Day, Mischa Richter, and others whose names I would not learn until years later even though I could instantly recognize their artistic styles. Weaned on such wonders it is not surprisingly that when I pick up a copy of "The New Yorker" I instantly flip through the magazine to look at each and every cartoon before going to look at what is happening in New York City in terms of shows and other entertainment that we can only dream about up here in the Zenith City.
"The Complete Cartoons of 'The New Yorker'" is edited by the magazine's cartoon editor Robert Mankoff, so blame him for any and all errors regarding the selection of the 2,004 (ha ha) cartoons selected, and with a Foreword by editor-in-chief David Remnick. There are also essays on the life and times (and humor) of each decade from the 1920's of James Thurber to the 2000's of Matthew Differ, written by the sort of eminent scribes you except to find in "The New Yorker," to wit: Roger Angell, Nancy Franklin, Lillian Ross, John Updike, Ian Frazier, Calvin Trillin, Mark Singer, and Rebecca Mead. But save those for after you have looked over the cartoons for each chapter, because then what they are talkinga bout will make more sense; then you can go back and look at the cartoons again to appreciate additional nuances.

huge volume - i had hours of fun! the cartoons on the cd are in .pdf format - so you won't be able to view them as a slideshow of screensaver - unless there is some way of extracting the images and saving them as .jpg files - i'm tempted to look into it. Still giving it 5 stars as the book is great.

A very enjoyable book with a very handy CD-Rom of all the cartoons featured. It's interesting to note the changes in humour through the decades and the changing social mores. An excellent purchase and a worthy companion to the recent "Punch" cartoon compendium, better actually, as it's considerably cheaper and contains the afore-mentioned CD-Rom.

Mindful of several reviews (on US Amazon)that panned the quality of the cartoons on the two CDs I decided to use an Amazon Marketplace Seller and got this huge book (new and still shrink-wrapped from Caiman in Florida) at a good price. As to the quality of the CD cartoons on my screen, no problem. The default seems to be fifty-two percent of the original and there is the option to make them any size if you want to, the captions come out black and are perfectly readable. I really didn't expect more than sixty-eight thousand cartoons to be of pristine quality unless the originals were scanned and this would obviously make copyright problems, so I am quite happy with what I see on screen.

As it is I have a wonderful (handsomely designed and printed) book of cartoons and the option to see, on the CDs, all the work of my favorites, Charles Saxon, Robert Weber, Sam Gross, Chon Day and Bill Hamilton's brilliant work about the goings-on in the financial world. A bargain!

If you enjoy witty and well drawn cartoons you can't help enjoying this book. It is a real feast of wit.You get a huge book with a selection of cartoons arranged chronically, and two discs with over 67 thousand cartoons on them. I haven't yet broached the discs, but they are apparently easy to access in a variety of ways. It would also make a really great gift for someone who loves the best cartoons.

I bought it as a gift for my father. He really enjoyed the book. He actually made a photocopy of one of them and put it in his office.
Its divided by decades. The style of the cartoons as well as the topics change and resonate with the times they were drawn in.
The books is quite big and heavy. It might be a problem for some. On the other hand it looks really nice on the shelf, as is.
What I don't like is the quality of some of the cartoons. It seems as if someone did a low-quality scan of the originals and placed them in the book. You can see pixels on some of the reproductions. I'm not sure why someone did allow it to look like that. This applies to a minority of the images so don't be afraid - most of the book looks nice.

Every home should have this enormous volume of cartoons that span the decades. It's great for dipping into when you want a little lift, and need to be reminded that whatever happens, life is basically funny. It's great for getting the creative juices going too - as a writer, I have had some of my best ideas for stories from the one-liners in here. It's amazing value, and the only person who won't thank you for ordering it is the poor soul who has to deliver this weighty tome.

Excellent value for money. The book is fantastic value alone. The disc has all the cartoons, however, you may have to zoom in on some to read the punchlines etc. Don't know how they can do it for the price!
