Mort Gerberg in the Gift Shop

After enjoying the retrospective "Mort Gerberg Cartoons: A New Yorker's Perspective" at the New-York Historical Society one naturally wants to see the related merchandise available in the gift shop. First off, the NYHistory Store has signed copies of Mort Gerberg on the Scene (Fantagraphics Underground, 2019) available for sale. This book collects most or all of the works in the show. There is an introduction by Ann Telnaes. Some older Gerberg publications are available as well, but these are unsigned.

Twelve framed prints in signed, limited editions of ten are available from UncommonGoods. The Butterfly Changed print is already sold out.

Perhaps you'd enjoy your morning coffee more in the company of a classic Gerberg deathbed cartoon. Sure, why not.

Notecards are available for those needing to upgrade their stationery.

Magnets are in stock as well. The Hamilton Tickets magnets are, naturally, sold out.

Going beyond Mr. Gerberg's art, zipper pouches in the store bear New Yorker cartoons by Bob Mankoff, Charles Barsotti, and Danny Shanahan. Trinket trays—what else?—from Nelson Line reproduce cartoons by Leo Cullum, Michael Maslin, Michael Crawford, and Shannon Wheeler.

There is a modern reprint edition of Here is New York (1949, 2018) by E. B. White with a new introduction by Roger Angell.

This signed copy of Mort Gerberg on the Scene is now on the scene in my home library.

Note:  "Mort Gerberg Cartoons: A New Yorker's Perspective" is on view at the New-York Historical Society through May 5, 2019. The NYHistory Store is right there on the premises.

The complete 2019 Nelson Line New Yorker collection catalogue may be seen here.
