The 'Profusely Illustrated' Life of Edward Sorel

 From the New York Times.

Toward the end of Edward Sorel’s new memoir, “Profusely Illustrated,” the veteran artist describes first seeing, in these pages, a cover review, written by Woody Allen, of his 2017 book “Mary Astor’s Purple Diary.” 

“To say that it made me ‘very happy’ would be an understatement,” he writes of the glorious moment. To Mr. Sorel, then, apologies in advance: I can only assume that seeing this byline will be pretty anticlimactic — or perhaps his habitual modesty has rubbed off. 

But if there’s one thing I learned from his memoir, it’s that the guy’s a mensch, and one with a solid regard for jobbers on a deadline.

Telnaes named EWK Laureate

 From the AAEC website.

The selection jury noted that Telnaes’ work “appears as a ‘shining star of hope’ for picture-oriented journalism in a media landscape under pressure,” and that “her scathing visual comments, honed by her characteristic style, have been a force in the political game.”
