Supinely from Ed Koren

A while back, I posted images from a copy of Lee Lorenz's The Art of The New Yorker 1925-1995 that once belonged to cartoonist David Pascal. Here is another copy of the book in my collection, this one inscribed by cartoonist Edward Koren with a quick ink sketch. It reads, "For Henry, Supinely--Ed Koren." Supine means lying down in the face-up position. I leave it to you just how supine Mr. Koren's figure is.

Note that the bookseller, Barnes & Noble Collectibles NYC, erroneously attributed the drawing to author Lee Lorenz.
