                          Happy Halloween!
If the above long ago rejected proposed cover (for The New Yorker) looks familiar it’s because I sometimes drag it out and plunk it down in this spot on Halloween. Hey, what can I say: I like cupcakes, and I like the little toy-like things bakers (sometimes) stick into them.

Catching Up With Two Fave Blogs: A New Yorker State Of Mind & Attempted Bloggery
Taking its customary deep dive, A New Yorker State Of Mind takes us back (and into) the issue of  September 3, 1932.
What a spectacular cover by Ilonka Karasz! Here’s Ms. Karasaz’s entry on the Spill’s A-Z:

 Attempted Bloggery carries on doing what it does best: keeping us informed of New Yorker pieces at auction or auctioned. 
In this latest post, appropriately enough for Halloween, Stephen Nadler (who runs AB) looks at a Gahan Wilson print. Go here to see the post and the entire Wilson print. 
Gahan Wilson’s entry on the Spill’s A-Z:
