The New Yorker Book of Golf Cartoons Signed by Bob Mankoff with a Drawing

The New Yorker's departing cartoon editor Bob Mankoff has probably signed more New Yorker books than anyone in history. Sometimes he adds a drawing too. He might even hold the record there as well.

Note:  As of Monday, Emma Allen will be the New Yorker's brand spanking new cartoon editor. Will she sign as many books as Bob Mankoff did? Will she attempt to draw in them? Why am I the only one to ask the really tough questions? It's because I have a sense of history. That is why, as a public service, I present to you the magazine's complete roster of art editors and cartoon editors. There's no need to thank me; I've been cutting and pasting it all week.

From Mr. Geraghty's time to 1993, the art editor was responsible for covers and cartoons. Since 1993, the art editor has been responsible only for covers and the cartoon editor has been responsible only for cartoons.

Rea Irvin, art supervisor, 1925-1939; art director, 1939-1951

James Geraghty, art editor, 1939-1972

Lee Lorenz, art editor, 1973-1993; cartoon editor, 1993-1997

Françoise Mouly, art editor, 1993-

Bob Mankoff, cartoon editor, 1997-2017

Emma Allen, cartoon editor, 2017-
