Details

The Art of Rube Goldberg (A) Inventive (B) Cartoon (C) Genius Selected by Jennifer George, Illustrations by Rube Goldberg, and Introduction by Adam Gopnik with Essay by Al Jaffee, Carl Linich, Peter Maresca, Paul Tumey, and Brian Walker.

Not many of us make it into the dictionary as an adjective. But then again, Rube Goldberg was no ordinary noun. He was a cartoonist, humorist, sculptor, author, engineer, and inventor, and in a 72-year career he wrote and illustrated nearly 50,000 cartoons. Goldberg (1883-1970) was the most famous cartoonist of his time, best known for his comical inventions, which were syndicated in daily newspapers throughout the world. Author Jennifer George celebrates all aspects of her grandfather's career, from his very first published drawings in his high school newspaper and college yearbook to his iconic inventions, his comic strips and advertising work, and his later sculpture and Pulitzer Prize-winning political cartoons. Also included are essays by noted comics historians, rare photographs, letters, memorabilia, and patents, many reproduced here for the first time. Brilliantly designed and packaged to capture the inventiveness of Rube Goldberg's work, The Art of Rube Goldberg is a coffee table book the whole family can enjoy.

Hardcover, 192 pages.

From the exhibition The Art and Wit of Rube Goldberg on view March 2, 2019 through June 9, 2019 at Norman Rockwell Museum.
