About a dozen signatures on the bookshop door represent cartoonists, many of whom made a name for themselves publishing their work in New York newspapers and magazines like the New York Herald, New York World, New Yorker, and Masses. Some, such as C. A. Voight and Gene Carr, created comic strips that ran weekly in Sunday newspaper editions. Other cartoonists, notably C. R. Macauley and Orson Lowell, drew editorial cartoons that satirized various aspects of contemporary life, from presidential politics to local Greenwich Village personalities.
