Anthology Collects Every 'New Yorker' Cartoon

A just-published New Yorker anthology collects every cartoon the magazine has published since its debut in 1925. The 68,647 cartoons fill a hardcover book and two accompanying CDs. A single book of the cartoons would fill more than 20,000 pages, according to the publisher.
