The Art of the New Yorker

By Lee Lorenz


The first paperback edition of the big, charming, funny and serious book in which 400 great New Yorker cartoons, covers, spots, caricatures, and photographs illustrate the behind-the-scenes story of the art of The New Yorker through seven decades.

LEE LORENZ, the magazine’s art editor for more than two decades and himself a noted cartoonist, tells us stories of the artists… anecdotes of life at The New Yorker from the Harold Ross years to the present… how The New Yorker has revolutionised the American cartoon and interpreted the changing scene. And he gives us a glorious array of the art itself-in colour and in black’ and white-selected from the work of The New Yorker greats, among them James Thurber, Peter Arno, Helen Hokinson, Steig, Booth, Addams, Saul Steinberg, Edward Sorel, and Roz Chast.
