Ha! Indeed!

Tuesday Good Newsday. 

I am always interested in finding new published material by the rgeat cartoonist Al Hirschfeld.And although there are several book collections of his work, I always have the impression that not even half of his work has been collected. Here is the first chapter of the novelisation of the book Westward Ha! by S. J. Perelman and illustrated by Hirschfeld in the woman's magazine Redbook (which is now available on The Internet Archive for those years). There was a book made from this, but from what I can see, I am not sure if all the drawings were used or even if some of them were redrawn. To start, I pulled the first chapter, which also happens to be from one of the few color issues on that platform.
