Review Text

'The city is never as charming as when its edifices are captured by illustrator James Gulliver Hancock" ~Manhattan Users Guide

"Sometimes it requires an out-of-town guest to get a native New Yorker to take a fresh look at all the architecture-landmark and otherwise- in our midst...His obsession might save you some shoe leather, or inspire you to burn some." ~New York Spaces

"New Yorkers and tourists alike will savor this one-of-a-kind volume that uniquely celebrates the energy and spirit of the city that never sleeps." ~Designers & Books

"A charmingly illustrated journey through New York City, neighborhood by neighborhood. All the Buildings in New York is a love letter to New York City, told through James Gulliver Hancock s unique and charming drawings of the city s diverse architectural styles and cityscape. His buildings are colorful and chock full of fun and offbeat details, and this book is full of new discoveries as well as old chestnuts for anyone who loves the Big Apple." ~Grainedit.com

"A Magnificent Obsession: New York" ~Againstthegrain.com

"...illustrator James Gulliver Hancock s love letter to New York City." ~Archdaily.com

...with each new building, he immerses himself deeper into a city that he once saw through a tourist s eyes as a film set of pop-cultural references." ~fastcodesign.com

"In his new book All The Buildings In New York, Hancock assembles his charming and extensive drawings of some of the Big Apple s most iconic buildings, as well as some more unfamiliar ones, into 64 pages of colorful illustrations. Described as a love letter to NYC, Hancock s drawings capture its diverse architectural styles, from the brownstones of Brooklyn to the Art Deco Chrysler building." ~Architizer.com
 
"...takes you through New York's famed neighborhood with facts about the iconic buildings, and also shows the beauty of some of NYC's nameless, everyday structures." ~Business Insider
 
Pledging to draw every building there was, he says it was his way of remapping the city into a more personal cartography. The result is a colorful, charming collection of what Hancock has seen and captured Hancock s illustrations aren t labored with detail, but do offer fine points that bring out what is special in each building he chooses to render this book is a lovely way to embrace the tangible.. ~North Adams Transcript
