Friday Spill: Newest Additions To The Spill Library; Today’s Daily Cartoonist & Cartoon; Frank Cotham Interviewed On Cartoon Caption Contest Podcast
July 16, 2021

Newest Additions To The Spill Library
This new addition to the spotty Spill collection of bound New Yorkers was a real treat to go through. Two Arno covers out of nine issues — he was on a hot streak in those post-war years.
Memorable moments: early Steinberg drawings (captionless); a few “composite” Thurber drawings, and a number of captionless artist-in-the studio drawings byAnatol Kovarsky.
One of my favorite finds was Frank Modells spot drawing of George Washington in the issue of February 19, 1949…
Modell had such an easy way with his art; a friendly style from a great cartoonist.

Also arrived this week was Lots Of Limericks (courtesy of a loyal Spill reader, Daniel Borinsky — my thanks to him!). The book is top heavy with illustrations by another great New Yorker cartoonist, Richard Taylor.
Taylor illustrated more books than I can count. I’m not sure who illustrated more: Taylor or Otto Soglow.
