Across the pond

April 5, 2008

A few cartooning/illustration tidbits from the new Economist:

Their talented cartoonist KAL is celebrating some 30 years with the newspaper, with a gallery of his work and a video about his job and how he got it.

The British children’s book is in trouble, squeezed by the Internet, foreign competition, and high production costs.

Also a nice diary on languages by a polyglot in five-plus; interesting reading for anyone who’s ever asked a hotel clerk if any rooms are available yesterday and been laughed out the door.

Some of these may become subscriber-only after this week.
