The Nine to Fivers
The SATURDAY EVENING POST pages in the '50s were like a Who's Who of cartoonists. All the greats ended up there sooner or later. This book, THE NINE TO FIVERS, is a collection first published in 1962. These cartoons are from the 1964 Popular Library paperback printing. They brought back a lot of memories for me of getting to my parents' subscription copy of the magazine so I could read all of the panel gags. When my parents had read the magazine I cut out all of the cartoons, and had hundreds of them at one time, now all lost. This book is a reminder to me of how much I enjoyed them at the time.
I have a lot more of these to come.
