Yiddishkeit, Buhle, Paul; Pekar, Harvey Editors with Hershl Hartman
1 Buhle, Paul; Pekar, Harvey Editors with Hershl Hartman Yiddishkeit
New York Abrams Comicarts 2011 0810997495 / 9780810997493 First printing Hardcover New new Jacket 
Yiddish is everywhere. We hear words like "nosh," "schlep," and "schmutz "all the time, but how did these words come to pepper American English? In "Yiddishkeit: Jewish Vernacular and the New Land," Harvey Pekar and Paul Buhle trace the influence of Yiddish from medieval Europe to the tenements of New York's Lower East Side. This comics anthology contains original stories by notable writers and artists such as Barry Deutsch, Peter Kuper, Spain Rodriguez, and Sharon Rudahl. Through illustrations, comics art, and a full-length play, four major themes are explored: culture, performance, assimilation, and the revival of the language. The last fully realized work by Harvey Pekar, this book is a thoughtful compilation that reveals the far-reaching influences of Yiddish.

4 Gruell, Johnny Mr. Twee Deedle, Raggedy Ann's Sprightly Cousin: The forgotten Fantasy Masterpieces of Johnny Gruelle
Fantagraphics 2012 1606994115 / 9781606994115 First printing Hardcover New 
18" x 14", 128 pages. A spectacular re-presentation of a lost classic. The second Marschall Books collection from Fantagraphics is a magnificent collection of Mr. Twee Deedle, Johnny Gruelle's masterpiece, unjustly forgotten by history and never before reprinted since its first appearance in America's newspapers from 1911 to 1914. The title character in the Sunday color page, Mr. Twee Deedle, is a magical wood sprite who befriends the strip's two human children, Dickie and Dolly. Gruelle depicted a charming, fantastical child's world, filled with light whimsy and outlandish surrealism. The artwork is among the most stunning ever to grace an Amercian newspaper page, and Gruelle's painterly color makes every page look like it was created on a canvas.
