Beautiful images worth looking at again and again.
on 17 October 2012
I am not familiar with the American magazine "New Yorker" except for the odd copy I have seen and browsed for a few minutes whilst on holiday. However this book is images and cartoons ie drawings from one of their contributors, Adrian Tomine.
The book starts off with a cartoon about the authors/artists arrival in the Big apple and its entertaining. But delve further into the book and there are covers from the New Yorker which Tomine has drawn and other drawings from the inside. The artistry is new too me but if you were/are a fan of Jaime Hernandez"s Love an Rockets you will see several similar drawings. I just love the cover and each drawing says tells a story. Just love it. I really know nothing about the arthur/artists but that will ow change. the drawings, the narrative to the rear of the book and the sketches have excited me. This was one lucky purchase for me and hopefully if you get this book you will enjoy it also.
