9780140159974: Cheap Novelties (Penguin Graphic Fiction S.)

In a vast and shadowy city of gold skyscrapers, neglected warehouses, juice stands, and coffee shops, Julius Knipl--a rumpled, middle-aged man in a suit and hat--wanders the streets, photographing buildings and pondering the human and visual landscape of the city. This world of epiphanies is captured in a remarkable series of cartoon short stories. Eight floors down from cartoonist Ben Katchor's studio on John Street, in the financial district, there is a crumbling, freestanding subway sign. Across the street, a store called The Tie Exchange promises New York's most beautiful tie collection. This is the setting for this graphic novel.
