This week I'd like to mention a few books I've read which may be of interest to you. They've motivated me and helped me write better. They're so full of relevant information that you can read them again and again and always learn something new.
Besides many New Yorker cartoon collections, my list includes:
* "The Cartoonist's Muse: A Guide to Generating and Developing Creative Ideas" by Mischa Richter and Harald Bakken.
* "Cartooning: The Art and the Business" by Mort Gerberg.
* "The Complete Cartoons of The New Yorker" edited by Robert Mankoff.
* "I Only Read It for the Cartoons" by Richard Gehr.
* "How About Never - Is Never Good for You?" by Bob Mankoff.
* "Hand-Drawn Jokes for Smart Attractive People" by Matt Diffee.
There are countless others I've read over the years.
Send me an e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org if any of these books have been particularly helpful to you and if there are others you'd like to recommend.
