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. From Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary: Rube Gold·berg. adjective \rüb-ˈgōl(d)-ˌbərg\: accomplishing by complex means what seemingly could be done simply a kind of Rube Goldberg contraption . . . with five hundred moving parts —L. T. Grant; also: characterized by such complex means. also: Rube Gold·berg·i·an “Goldberg’s cartoons touch the edge of modern art.” —Adam Gopnik, from his introduction

Economy and the Future

A monster stalks the earth—a sluggish, craven, dumb beast that takes fright at the slightest noise and starts at the sight of its own shadow. This monster is the market. The shadow it fears is cast by a light that comes from the future: the Keynesian crisis of expectations. It is this same light that causes the world’s leaders to tremble before the beast. They tremble, Jean-Pierre Dupuy says, because they have lost faith in the future. What Dupuy calls Economy has degenerated today into a mad spectacle of unrestrained consumption and speculation. But in its positive form—a truly political economy in which politics, not economics, is predominant—Economy creates not only a sense of trust and confidence but also a belief in the open-endedness of the future without which capitalism cannot function. In this devastating and counterintuitive indictment of the hegemonic pretensions of neoclassical economic theory, Dupuy argues that the immutable and eternal decision of God has been replaced with the unpredictable and capricious judgment of the crowd. The future of mankind will therefore depend on whether it can see through the blindness of orthodox economic thinking.

Pogo is a long running comic strip that has appeared in the daily newspapers since 1948. Children like it because it is about funny talking animals. Adults see it as political satire. Pogo is an Opossum who lives in the Okefenokee Swamp on the southern border of Georgia next to Florida. Pogo Possum lives with his many animal friends, including Albert Alligator, Howland Owl (who always wears glasses), Churchill "Churchy" LaFemme, a mud turtle by trade who enjoys composing songs and poems, Beauregard Bugleboy, a hound dog, Porky Pine, a porcupine, and Alabaster Alligator. Pogo is usually fishing for food and when he catches one of his friends he is often on the verge of eating his friend but then is talked out of it. This particular series of episodes was published during the 1952 election campaign for US President. The Okefenokee Swamp where Pogo and his friends live is 600 miles from Washington DC. In spite of this distance, they decide to run Pogo for US President. Their campaign slogan is "I Go Pogo" which is a take off of the election campaign of President Eisenhower, who ran under the campaign slogan of "I Like Ike." The cover of this book shows people holding signs. These are people campaigning for Pogo for President. All of the cartoons contain sarcastic references to the leading issues of the day, such as the fact that there are too many national holidays.

BETTIE! : The Incomparable Bettie Page Archives of Irving Klaw is a very carefully curated collection of exquisitely reproduced photographs. Never before have so many of Klaw's photographs been published in a single book. The photographs include some of the most iconic photographs ever taken of Bettie as well as some never before published photographs of the legendary 1950's pinup queen.The photographer, Irving Klaw, was noted as one of America's first fetish photographers and Bettie as America's first famous bondage model. From 1952 through 1958 the pair worked together weekly in Irving's New York studio. Irving was played by Chris Bauer opposite Gretchen Mol in the 2005 film, "The Notorious Bettie Page". The Kefauver Hearings of the Senate Subcommittee on Juvenile Delinquency in 1957 marked the beginning of the end of Irving's mail-order photography business in New York. The investigation tried to link pornography to juvenile delinquency. The McCarthy-style hearings branded Irving as a degenerate pornographer and ushered in a new wave of media censorship. Bettie was also summoned to the hearings but was never called to testify (parts of the hearings are recreated in the film The Notorious Bettie Page). She retired from modeling soon afterwards. Because of the political, social and legal pressures he faced, Irving closed his storefront business and burned many of his negatives. It is estimated that more than 80% of the negatives were destroyed. However, his sister Paula secretly kept some of the better images, which are now reproduced like never before in this exclusive book.
