Publisher Comments:

Cartoonists are finally getting their due. Compiled and edited by Lee Lorenz, former art editor of The New Yorker and an acclaimed cartoonist in his own right, The Essential Cartoonistslibrary is a celebration of this unique visual art form. Each volume focuses on one truly outstanding artist and features approximately 150 of the artist's best cartoons, as well as insight into background, influences, inspirations, working habits, and more. Launching the series:The Essential George Booth and The Essential Charles Barsotti. In Booth, Lorenz traces the career of this New Yorker icon. Known primarily for his unmistakable characters--Mr. Ferguson, the violin-playing Mrs. Rittenhouse, curmudgeons with their crazed dogs and unruly profusion of cats--Booth combines warmth, energy, quirkiness, and amazing detail. Like another famous Missourian, Mark Twain, Booth has never lost that flavor of small-town eccentricity--or the laugh-out-loud humor that defines his work.

Synopsis:

Mrs. Ritterhouse, Mr. Ferguson, The Man In The Tub - And, Of course, That Dog...

George Booth is an icon, a quintessential New Yorker cartoonist whose lovable band of cat ladies and crackpots has been delighting readers for over thirty years. Now he finally gets his artistic due in The Essential George Booth, an irresistible collection of over 100 drawings plus an appreciation and interview by noted cartoonist and art editor Lee Lorenz.
