The above arrived via a late-in-the-day delivery, and as you can see it’s already on its way to being well-thumbed. 119 cartoonists* weigh in (wade in?) on the desert island scenario. Congrats to editors Ellis Rosen & Jon Adams!
Charles Saxon (self portrait from Best Cartoons of the Year 1947) Born in Brooklyn, November 13, 1920, died in Stamford, Conn., December 6, 1988. New Yorker work: 1943 – 1991 (2 drawings published posthumously). Key collection: One Man’s Fancy ( Dodd, Mead, 1977). One of the giants of the New Yorker’s stable of artists. He could do it all: covers, spreads, single panels.
Please post more from the Saxon monograph. The masses can’t have enough of him!
