Three Book Ads
Here’s a trio of ads I ran across this morning while having a fun breeze through of some late 1970s, early 1980s New Yorkers.* Seeing the Steig book ad, I’d forgotten the Lillian Ross intro — I’m inspired to dig the book out of the Spill library and see what Ms. Ross had to say about Mr. Steig. The Thurber Letters book has always been a favorite (a later collection, The Thurber Letters, edited by Harrison Kinney, and Rosemary Thurber is just as wonderful). The Katharine White collection took me by surprise back when it was published; I wasn’t paying attention to articles on the subject. However, I found the book a pleasure to read.
*The Steig / Katharine White ads ran in the  December 3, 1979 New Yorker.
The Thurber Letters as ran in the issue of November 30, 1981.

Kudos to Barry Blitt – great caricature of a child in beard and suit and tie who calls himself a Senator.
