Overview

The multitalented comedian Steve Martin and the heralded New Yorker cartoonist Harry Bliss team up on a collection of humorous cartoons and comic strips, with amusing commentary about their collaboration.

I've always looked upon cartooning as comedys last frontier. I have done stand-up, sketches, movies, monologues, awards show introductions, sound bites, blurbs, talk show appearances, and tweets, but the idea of a one-panel image with or without a caption mystified me. I felt like, yeah, sometimes Im funny, but there are these other weird freaks who are actually funny. You CA understand that I was deeply suspicious of these people who are actually funny.So writes the multitalented comedian Steve Martin in his introduction to A Wealth of Pigeons: A Cartoon Collection. In order to venture into this lauded territory of cartooning, he partnered with the heralded New Yorker cartoonist Harry Bliss. Steve shared caption and cartoon ideas, Harry provided impeccable artwork, and together they created this collection of humorous cartoons and comic strips, with amusing commentary about their collaboration throughout. The result: this gorgeous, funny, singular book, perfect to give as a gift or to buy for yourself.
