"Drawing a Crowd" by Bill Gallo$49.00
Offering a rare copy of the late Bill Gallo's engaging opus, Drawing a Crowd: Bill Gallo's Greatest Sports Moments. In the pages of this lively and lovingly done book, there are more than a few.
The award-winning cartoonist gathers favorite drawings of over 40 years with New York's Daily News. After a brief personal profile, Gallo pays graphic tribute to achievements and the achievers in sports and society during his long career (with even a sidebar thrown in about World War II). With help from Basement Bertha, General Von Steingrabber, and the other cartoon regulars, he salutes Ali, DiMaggio, Stengal, Jordan, Jim Brown, and hundreds of athletes in remembrances that will delight the eye as well as the heart. The book's Foreword is by former Daily News editor Pete Hamill.
Mr. Gallo was often asked how long it took him to complete a cartoon. He liked to say, "Two hours and 45 years."
