review 1: I can't begin to describe how much I loved this book. I plan to purchase it so that I can look back though it and enjoy it again and again. Christoph Niemann is a designer and writes a visual blog for the New York Times, and this book is sort of a compilation of his work. I "read...

review 1: 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 va...

review 1: I LOVE this picture book. I love the concept which aligns perfectly with my own visual approach to the world and, I suspect, many children's also. (That of finding visual cues everywhere to help understand and learn things.) My 9 year old son loves the book as well and took great...

review 1: This book is not a traditional book in the sense it does have sort of a story line but the text in it are mainly captions of what the pictures represent. Throughout this book there are photographs of the different parts of New York City made out of Legos. Not only does it represe...
