Product description

Two strangers, both reading the same novel, share a fleeting glance between passing subway cars. A bookstore owner locks eyes with a neighbor as she receives an Amazon package. Strangers are united by circumstance as they wait on the subway stairs for a summer storm to pass. Instantly recognizable, Adrian Tomine's illustrations and comics have been appearing for over a decade in the pages (and on the cover) of "The New Yorker". "New York Drawings" is a loving homage to the city that Tomine, a West Coast transplant, has called home for the past seven years. This lavish, beautifully-designed volume collects every cover, comic and illustration that he has produced for "The New Yorker" to date, along with an assortment of other rare and uncollected illustrations and sketches. Complete with notes and annotations by the author, "New York Drawings" will also feature an all-new introductory comic (in the style of the final two pages of Optic Nerve Number 12).
