ALL THE BUILDINGS IN NEW YORK THAT I'VE DRAWN SO FAR by James Gulliver Hancock - book signing

reporter: Miguel Dominguez

On May 16th at the Rizzoli New York bookstore, artist James Gulliver Hancock had a signing of his book All the Buildings in New York: That I've Drawn So Far illustrating the many architectural features of New York City.

The book features New York buildings such as the Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center, and Flatiron Building, as well as the everyday buildings that make up New York City—boutique shops in SoHo, Brooklyn brownstones, and markets in Chinatown. Even the the front of the Rizzoli Bookstore is portrayed, which was also made into two Gicleé prints that were raffled along with two other prints of The Chrysler and Empire State Buildings.

James Gulliver Hancock is an artist and illustrator. His work has been exhibited in galleries worldwide, and he has worked with a wide variety of high-profile clients, including Coca-Cola, the New York Times, and Herman Miller Furniture. He chronicles his attempt to draw every single building in New York City at the popular blog All the Buildings in New York.

Readers will be delighted by this charmingly illustrated volume with drawings that recall in style, the breezy illustrations of the 1950s that were very much typified by Andy Warhol in his early phase as a commercial illustrator.
