Edward Koren is best known for his cartoons and covers for The New Yorker magazine. This book explores the full range of the art he has produced during the past five decades: original drawings for cartoons and illustrated books as well as prints and posters. A variety of finished drawings are included—figures that emerged from the commedia dell'arte, fanciful beasts that might occupy a diorama in the American Museum of Natural History, cyclists pedaling through cities and countryside—all documenting the inventive play of the artist's imagination through the motion of his pen or pencil.

David Rosand is Meyer Schapiro Professor Emeritus of Art History at Columbia University. Diana Fane is curator emerita of the arts of the Americas at the Brooklyn Museum.
