Go, Read: Henry Martin Profiled


I didn't know that New Yorker cartoonist and prolific spot illustrator Henry Martin was still alive, nor that he was still active in various areas, nor that he was the father of Ann M. Martin. Thanks to this profile of his gift to Princeton University, I know all of these things now. I always thought it would be funny if they did a TV show based on Sergio Aragones and Henry Martin, two cartoonists whose best work was never all that incidental and was always well in the spirit of each magazine they are best known for serving. You can see a few samples of Martin's offerings from The New Yorker here.
