Iconic postcards from a beloved illustrator

Adrian Tomine (Shortcomings, Scenes from an Impending Marriage) has forged countless iconic images of New York City in his career as an illustrator. A master of conveying an entire story with a single panel, his covers for The New Yorker are beloved by New Yorkers and non–New Yorkers alike, as much for their frank yet charming portrayal of life in the big city as for their flawless design and gorgeous linework.
New York Postcards celebrates thirty of Tomine's most well-known illustrations, and is a loving homage to the city that Tomine, a West Coast transplant, has called home for the past eight years.
