Publisher Description

This monumental, two-volume, slip-cased collection includes nearly 10 decades worth of New Yorker cartoons selected and organized by subject with insightful commentary by Bob Mankoff and a foreword by David Remnick.

The is the most ingenious collection of New Yorker cartoons published in book form, The New Yorker Encyclopedia of Cartoons is a prodigious, slip-cased, two-volume, 1,600-page A-to-Z curation of cartoons from the magazine from 1924 to the present. Mankoff -- for two decades the cartoon editor of the New Yorker -- organizes nearly 3,000 cartoons into more than 250 categories of recurring New Yorker themes and visual tropes, including cartoons on banana peels, meeting St. Peter, being stranded on a desert island, snowmen, lion tamers, Adam and Eve, the Grim Reaper, and dogs, of course. The result is hilarious and Mankoff's commentary throughout adds both depth and whimsy. The collection also includes a foreword by New Yorker editor David Remnick. This is stunning gift for the millions of New Yorker readersand anyone looking for some humor in the evolution of social commentary.

Very good

I own the (massive) physical copy (a 2-volume set) and wanted to get this digital one for easier reading. It’s has a ton of content and the cartoons look great. The only thing stopping it from being perfect is that the spot illustrations (one for each header) are super blurry. It’s honestly hard to tell what most of them are trying to show. It’s so bad that sometimes I have to pull out my physical copy to see what they were! But otherwise this ebook is great and will give you hours of laughs.
