New Yorker Cartoonist Barry Blitt

Dec 4, 2017

Barry Blitt’s cartoons have been lampooning American politics and culture for decades. His iconic New Yorker covers are defining images for our times, earning him adoration from critics and fans and piles of hate mail from everyone else.

The book, "Blitt" shares his private sketchbooks, drafts, and uproarious rejected illustrations, offering readers an illuminating view into his creative process and features the author's hand-scrawled annotations and self-deprecating witticisms, more than one hundred never-before-seen sketches and drafts, and essays from Blitt’s collaborators and peers, including Frank Rich, Françoise Mouly, and Steve Brodner.
