Saul Steinberg (June 15, 1914 – May 12, 1999) was a Romanian American cartoonist and illustrator. He described himself as “a writer who draws”. He works mostly in pen, often a single black line, to produce complex witty commentary on absurdities of life. In some of his illustrations he also incorporates black and white collaged elements and objects like thumbprints.
He is best known for his work for The New Yorker. His cartoons have been compiled and produced in a number of books.
