About this title

Synopsis:

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.

From the Back Cover:

In a vast and shadowy city of old 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 details: the scent of the past that seeps into the present; the ghosts of other values and cultures embedded in the urban landscape; people and behaviors almost gone that linger on. He sees what others overlook.
