The caricature shown below of the famous face of founder, Nathan Handwerker, was created especially for a New York Post announcement of the expansion of Famous into Oceanside by the Post's famed, long-term (1950-1977) editorial and sports cartoonist, John Pierotti.



The original of this work hangs in the home of Nathan's grandson, Bill Handwerker, author of Nathan's Famous: The First 100 Years, and previously hung in the company's offices in Coney Island. Except when it appeared in the aforementioned brief news announcement in the Post, the image has never before been seen publicly, either printed in any book ot by online display.
