All Over The World

Jack Shafer has a great Slate article on Nicholson Baker's collection of original newspaper volumes of Joseph Pulitzer's New York World. (Thanks, Maud!)

Those who read about Baker's quest in Double Fold will be delighted to hear that he and his wife now have a book collecting the World's graphic genius: The World on Sunday: Graphic Art in Joseph Pulitzer's Newspaper (1898 - 1911).

For instance:

...The Busiest Hour on Earth. Between 6 and 7 p.m. More Happens on Manhattan Island than Anywhere Else -- Here Are a Few Surprising Occurences.

The artist was, of course, that busiest and most prolific of all vintage illustrators: Unknown.
