For twenty years the cartoon editor of The New Yorker (until he retired to a farm Upstate a few years back), Bob Mankoff presents this oversized slipcased two-volume album of the magazine's finest cartoons. Over 12 inches high—and 4 inches thick—this is a whopper, organizing nearly 3,000 cartoons into 250 categories of recurring themes and visual tropes. You'll find accountants, Adam & Eve, adultery, advertising, aging, air travel, and eight other topics just in the As, not to mention banana peels, meeting St. Peter, being stranded on a desert island, snowmen, lion tamers, the Grim Reaper, and of course, dogs. Mankoff's commentary adds to the fun, while New Yorker editor David Remnick provides a foreword, and this edition includes a frameable cartoon print from the magazine's archives.
