|New Book of Horse-Related Cartoons|
Will Benefit Equine Research
The Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation is now selling a customized, limited-edition book of equine-related cartoons, all of which have appeared in The New Yorker magazine.
The hardcover book, produced in collaboration with The Cartoon Bank, sells for $50.00, not including tax and shipping. It features nearly 90 cartoons, most with an equine theme, by 46 artists, and it can be ordered by calling (212) 521-5305 or by visiting the Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation web site at http://www.grayson-jockeyclub.org.
A special color section of the book features equine cartoons that appeared on covers of The New Yorker.
The Cartoon Bank, a New Yorker Magazine company, is the world’s leading licensor of magazine-style humor, with a growing list of more than 85,000 published and unpublished cartoons by many of the most popular panel cartoonists of all time.
“This is a unique book and I think anyone with an appreciation for horses and humor will enjoy it,” said Edward L. Bowen, president of Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation. “Besides making an excellent gift or great addition to a personal library, a portion of the proceeds from the sale of these books will benefit equine research funded by the Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation.”
There are only 500 books available to be sold.
The cover cartoon was created by noted author, writer and cartoonist William Hamilton, a regular contributor to The New Yorker. He is the husband of Lucy Young Hamilton, a member of the Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation board of directors.
