Synopsis: Spanning fifty years in the career of noted cartoonist and humorist of Saul Steinberg, this collection of paintings and drawings, including many from The New Yorker, captures the diverse landscapes, people, and character of America.
From Library Journal:
In 1942, Steinberg arrived in Miami from Romania. For 50 years, he has been discovering America, then sharing his drawings of cities and small towns and all the subcultures between them. In this collection, which includes over 200 illustrations spanning 40 years of images, many first seen in The New Yorker , Steinberg is Columbus with a pen. If this book is flawed, we cannot blame the artist, who always points the way. Instead, we must look to the lengthy and obtuse introduction by Arthur C. Danto, who has a knack for clumsy sentences and a logic that is his special secret. But this painful introduction does little to detract from the delightful work by Steinberg, whose discovery of America is neither politically correct nor incorrect--just perfect. Recommended for most libraries.
