All cartoonists are geniuses, wrote John Updike, but Arnold Roth especially so. He's an American original; irreverent, tireless, manicky, and secretly efficient... his work jumps with joy. You won't find better proof of this argument than this book, a generous, career-spanning collection of Roth's best cartoons and painted illustrations, originally created to serve as a catalog for a long-overdue gallery exhibition of this master cartoonist's work. From his early cartoons through his eye-popping and imaginative color illustrations for such magazines as Playboy, Esquire, TV Guide and Sports Illustrated, this book will delight any fan of superior cartooning.
