Lisa's Copy of the Art of the New Yorker 1925-1995

Lisa, a former employee of Knopf's publicity department, had her copy of Lee Lorenz's The Art of The New Yorker 1925-1995 signed by at least nine cartoonists. Frank Modell and Edward Koren each took a full page, leaving seven cartoonists to make do on another.
