Shannon Silveira's Copy of The Art of the New Yorker 1925-1995

When The Art of The New Yorker 1925-1995 by Lee Lorenz was published in 1995 it was promoted not only in New York on the East Coast but in Los Angeles on the West Coast. Four New Yorker cartoonists made a rare appearance together at Storyopolis in the courtyard of the Pacific Theatre. Mr. Lorenz was joined by Edward Koren, Bob Mankoff, and Victoria Roberts. Invitations to the event directed that RSVP's be phoned to Shannon Silveira, once an employee of Condé Nast, and it is her copy of the book, apparently, that was sold on eBay two years ago.
