Cartoon Modern for the budget-conscious

Cartoon Modern cover

I know most people have my book Cartoon Modern by now, but if you’re in need of a copy, Amazon is currently selling new copies at a 42% discount, the cheapest I’ve seen to date on their website. I don’t believe it’s been remaindered because those discounts are generally much steeper, but $23.28 is still a good deal for a $40 book.

From my understanding, the first printing of the book is nearly out of stock and there aren’t plans for a second printing as of this writing, so it’s a doubly good time to pick up an extra copy or two. Also, if you’re in New York City, it’s worth noting that the great Strand Books always keeps a nice stock of Cartoon Modern and sells them at a 20% discount (or $31.95).

UPDATE Looks like the discount period is over. Amazon has returned the book to its usual 34% discount instead of the 42% discount.

    I’m visiting my in-laws. Among the subtle critiques they make of my character, being too “polite” to complain that I practice a different religion and come from a more talkative and confrontational people, are that I watch cartoons and buy books. Thus, I just bought Cartoon Modern. I’ve been meaning too. This seems as good a time as any.

    (Also, I pinch pennies, they’re frugal.)

    Good book. Buy several copies (as I have) and give ‘em as gifts. Stylish, informative, and low on fat. Pair it with a nice Cabernet.

    Thanks for the tip. I’ve had this recommended to me so many times but just never got around to picking it up. Time to change that.

    Perhaps with some fava beans and a nice Chianti ..wha …never mind.
    Hmmm, now how to get you to sign it. Thanks for this as I’m always perusing someone else’s. Regardless of any discounts, an extraordinary value.
