The Art of William Steig, by Claudia J. Nahson (Editor)
The definitive work on the career of the beloved New Yorker cartoonist and children’s book illustrator. Known for his brilliant cartoons and award-winning children’s books, William Steig (1907–2003) leaves a legacy that spans much of the twentieth century.
This lavishly illustrated book features over 280 of Steig’s drawings, many of them previously unpublished, and examines every aspect of his work, from the “Small Fry” cartoons—his earliest submissions to the New Yorker— and haunting symbolic drawings of the late 1930s and 1940s, to his later, bitingly funny cartoons and celebrated books for children.
"This is a rare book—one that both youngsters and scholars will value. . . . Highly recommended."— Choice, the reviewing journal used by most academic libraries in the United States.
