Book Launch For Sorel’s “Profusely Illustrated” 
Lotsa laffs at last night’s book launch forEdward Sorel’s Profusely Illustrated (published by Knopf) at the Century Association, just a skip and a jump from The New Yorker‘s old offices at 25 West 43rd Street. This cartoonist, accompanied by New Yorker colleagues Liza Donnelly and John Cuneo, dipped into the old building to breathe in some history and marvel at the vaulted ceilinged hallway and charming art deco elevator doors, left as they were decades ago. I could almost envision William Shawn, in overcoat, stepping into “his” elevator, then heading up to the magazine he loved.

At the Century, some of the folks that popped out of the little stairway that led to the lower level festivities: Graydon Carter, late of Vanity Fair; the legendary Seymour Chwast; the broadway star, Jim Dale (the voice of all the characters in all of the Harry Potter books on tape. When he speaks, one is ever-so-briefly transported to Hogwarts and beyond); Steven Heller; Photographer, Anne Hall Elser, former editorial staff member of The New Yorker;  illustrator & caricaturist, Steve Brodner;  Pultizer Prize winning editorial cartoonist, Signe Wilkinson; James McMullen of Lincoln Center poster fame, and the designer, Walter Bernard.
And the book? As previously stated on this site:  well worth the price of admission.
