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.

NPR's Joe Palca speaks with New Yorker cartoon editor Robert Mankoff and cartoonist Matthew Diffee as the magazine prepares to celebrate its 80th anniversary.
