"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.Read more ›
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!
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.

The perfect history of the dry, supremely laid back, intelligent and slightly dark American humour. You won't laugh out loud but rather giggle appreciatively to yourself. Read morePublished 15 days ago by Amazon Customer

SUPERB collection. Slight problem opening the cd enclosed in the cover but eventually did it although it is tedious finding the copies.Published 19 months ago by Sexton Hut
It's interesting for the time span of the cartoons and it tends to emphasise a difference in attitudes and sense of humour between Britain and the USA.Published 21 months ago by John Ashford
