A perfect gift for longstanding fans and lucky new readers, the 50th anniversary edition of The Phantom Tollbooth is a book to cherish.

A book that has crossed that three-generation barrier has a good chance at permanence...[this is] an anniversary that matters." The New Yorker
Everyone knows a Feiffer illustration when they see one: His characters leap across the page, each line belying humor and psychological insight. Over Feifferand#8217;s prolific 70-year career, his nimble and singular imagination has given us new perspectives as well as biting satires on politics, love, marriage, and religionand#8212;alternating with stories imbued with the playful anarchy of a child. Feifferand#8217;s varied output includes childrenand#8217;s books (The Phantom Tollbooth and Bark, George), plays (Little Murders), movies (Carnal Knowledge and Popeye), and comic strips (most notably in his Pulitzer Prizeand#8211;winning Village Voice comic strip of 42 years). Out of Line: The Art of Jules Feiffer is the long-awaited illustrated retrospective of Feifferand#8217;s celebrated career, providing a revealing glimpse into his creative process and his role as Americaand#8217;s foremost Renaissance man of the arts.
