The Greatest
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Will Elder 16 May 2008 9:59 AM

I came across this incredible Will Elder photo this morning, looking for some nice Elder photos in our MAD PLAYBOY OF ART files, to give the Los Angeles Times for its obituary, which I'm told will run tomorrow. Was there ever a man who embodied the vivaciousness of his work more perfectly? 

Feiffer at the Strand - video
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under videoJules Feifferevents 16 May 2008 9:55 AM

Here is the Strand bookstore's video widget, from which you can watch last night's Jules Feiffer presentation. (As a bonus, you can also watch Gary Panter with Jonathan Lethem.) If you come across this blog entry in the future and don't see the Feiffer link (or there's a live video feed going on), click the "highlights" tab; if you still don't see the link, click here to access the video on the Strand website. (And if you keep navigating the "highlights" tab, you'll find Alexander Theroux's reading from last February as well.)

From now through Father's Day (June 15, 2008), save 15% on a selection of great Dad-centric gift items.
