A retrospective celebration of America's great cartoonist Charles Addams with 24 of his 65 'New Yorker' cover paintings in brilliant full color.

"This is Charlie's book- selections from his work of sixty years. The first drawing, the skater, was printed in 'The New Yorker' when he was twenty-one years old; the last few appeared in 1990 after his death. With a few minor exceptions, I've put everything into chronological order. I hope that the drawings in this book are the ones that he too would have chosen." - Tee Addams, July 1991.

Price: $50.00
