The World of William Steig, Lee Lorenz w/intro by John Updike

5 stars
Lorenz, a former art and cartoon editor for The New Yorker, friend, and thoughtful critic, has pulled together a wonderful invitation to Steig's life and work. The well-written book was compiled while Steig was in his 90s and follows a chronological approach to tbe production of his art. Filled with Steig's whimsical and delightful drawings this made for a very fun read.
