1966 Reuben Awards Journal Advertisements

 The cover of the Reubens Journal designed by Jerry Robinson.

The 20th anniversary year for the National Cartoonists Society was 1966. Here are some of the advertisements from the Reubens Journal of that year.

The NCS offsets its costs by selling ad space to members -- as well as others who may want to advertise. Many of these are special and unknown drawings by some of the great cartoonists.

Rube Goldberg:

Hank Ketcham saluting the one and only Percy Crosby:

Snow Storm, October 30, 2011

12-14 inches of snow up here in the foothills of the White Mountains.

Nope. Not going out today.


Snowy front yard.

The woodpile is at the bottom of the photo.


Drifts up to my knees.

The Adirondack chairs with puffy mounds of the white stuff. They look all marshmallowy.
