Adrian Tomine's illustrations and comics have appeared for more than a decade in the pages (and on the cover) of The New Yorker. Instantly recognizable for their deceptively simple and evocative style, these images have garnered the attention of the New Yorker's readership and the approbation of such venerable institutions as the Art Directors Club and American Illustration.

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 inspired by the city. Complete with notes and annotations by the author, NEW YORK DRAWINGS will also feature a new introductory comic focusing on Tomine's experiences as a New York illustrator.

The Comics Reporter: "A surprisingly hefty volume of work from what he considers a separate artistic endeavor: commercial illustration...Many of the virtues of Tomine's comics are on display in New York Drawings, and not just those few pages devoted to comics: strong composition, an attractive line, clarity of concept."

T Magazine: "A wonderful celebration of the artwork of the cartoonist Adrian Tomine...The book achieves a great balance between allowing the drawings room to breathe and a notes section that details how the assignments came about and the artist's process."

And a sweet essay by Adrian ruminating on the ubiquity of people actually reading in NYC: Huffington Post

The NY Times Magazine on Sunday, Adrian and Dan share their inspirations.

Boing Boing: "You open this collection and realize Tomine is still you stare and search, the book store is changed from a stationary object for coffee tables and dusty bookshelves into something more vibrant -- not quite a graphic novel per se, but a portrait, certainly, of the world around him.–Brian Heater
