More Humor and Laughs are Inevitable - The New Yorker and Bloomberg Publish New Cartoon Series

Apr 24, 2001, 01:00 ET from Bloomberg Press

    PRINCETON, N.J., April 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Bloomberg Press has signed an
 exclusive agreement with The New Yorker to publish six cartoon books starting
 this October. The books will concentrate on mainstream subjects including kids
 and sports.
     The new series follows Bloomberg's publication of four previous cartoon
 titles with The New Yorker focusing on business, money, politics, and -- more
 recently -- technology according to Bob Mankoff, cartoon editor of The New
 Yorker.  Mankoff is president and founder of The Cartoon Bank, which is the
 repository of The New Yorker's world famed cartoon archive.
     "We're excited about moving ahead with Bloomberg Press and have decided to
 consolidate our publishing program with them for an extended period of time,"
 says Mankoff.  "We look forward to collaborating and expanding into new areas
 as we utilize the full resources of The Cartoon Bank's vast collection of New
 Yorker cartoons."
     John Crutcher, who jointly edits The New Yorker books for Bloomberg Press
 along with Christine Miles, says, "this collaboration is an out growth of
 Bloomberg's featuring business and money cartoons from The Cartoon Bank on our
 professional service for years.  This close relationship led to our publishing
 cartoon books on a variety of topics -- working with The New Yorker and Bob
 Mankoff to publish the work of some of the best cartoonists in the world is a
 sheer delight."
     Crutcher noted The New Yorker cartoon books published by Bloomberg have
 resulted in strong sales.
     The deal was brokered by Jane Cavolina, who edited The New Yorker 75th
 Anniversary Cartoon Collection when she was a senior editor at Pocket Books.
