Françoise Mouly joined The New Yorker as art editor in 1993. She has been the publisher and editorial director of TOON Books since its launch in 2008. Mouly founded Raw Books & Graphics in 1977 and was publisher for 15 years. Starting in 1980, Mouly was the founder, publisher and designer of the pioneering avant-garde comics anthology RAW, which she co-edited along with her husband, cartoonist Art Spiegelman. RAW first brought acclaim to artists such as Charles Burns, Sue Coe, Gary Panter, Chris Ware, Lorenzo Mattotti, Joost Swarte, Xavier Mariscal, and many others. It is also the magazine where Maus, Spiegelman’s Pulitzer Prize-winning comic book on the Holocaust, was first published.
