A new Gluyas Williams book, looks neat:


Following a terrific show in Brooklyn last Saturday, we’re pleased to offer our newest book to the masses! THE WIDE OPEN SPACES – PANORAMA CARTOONS BY GLUYAS WILLIAMS. This proved to be a hot item at the show; an oversized publication showcasing the intricate panoramas of one of the great cartoonists of his – or any – generation, most of which have not seen the light of day since their original publications. Restored to glorious beauty and five years in the making! Get your copies HERE!

"Gentlemen —- I don’t suppose the opinion of one who climbs into a sixty-five cent upper gallery seat carries quite as much weight as the wishes of the ermine-wrapped patrons who adorn the boxes. But when we keep getting the D Minor, the Lovedeath and such hackneyed fare from week to week, to the total exclusion of contemporary artists, then I say appeasement has gone too far. I wouldn’t expect to find you programming Schönberg and Bartók (!), but in the name of heaven, have we become so ossified that not even a little Mahler, Prokofieff, or even…"

These wonderous Williams drawings come to us courtesy of another Benchley collection, this time from No Poems, Or Around the World Backwards and Sideways, with the classic Williams line deftly in hand.

And we are back from our unintentional posting hiatus! More Gluyas Williams scans (I’m finishing those up today), this time from the Robert Benchley collection Chips off the Old Benchley, first published by Harper & Brothers in 1949, making it Benchley’s only posthumous collection on the list.

juryrig:

I scanned the Gluyas Williams illos out of some Robert Benchley books at the library. This is the third set (of three) from 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, or David Copperfield, originally published in 1928 by Henry Holt & Co.
I scanned two other books but I waiting till the end to post one of them and I have two more I haven’t scanner yet, so we’ll see how it goes. Yeaaaah.
