Abstract City

Written by Christoph Niemann

This book is a compilation of posts from artist/illustrator Christoph Niemann's New York Times blog, also called Abstract City. Niemann uses a crazy variety of media (fallen leaves, cookie dough and sprinkles, Google Maps, as well as the usual ink, pencil and paint) to examine various aspects of everyday urban life, such as how to manage all those cables we have in our lives nowadays, an homage to coffee, and the stuff of everyday New York City life, constructed with Legos. If you're wondering how he comes up with it all, the book wraps up with an explanation of his creative process.
