Illustration Faculty Ben Katchor’s Book Lands on Best Books Lists of 2013!

Written by:



Katchor’s book, Hand-Drying in America and other stories, was named on Time’s Top 10 Comics and Graphic Novels list, and NPR’s list as well! Congrats to Ben!

Excerpt from TIME:

“The scratchy, understatedly goofy monthly comic strips that MacArthur Fellowship-winning cartoonist Katchor has contributed to Metropolis magazine since 1998 are cockeyed wonders about the enduring architecture of the city (by which he means New York City) and the way urban citizens adapt their lives to fit it. He conjures up absurdities —gentrification of ’50s-era public housing complexes, a corporate office redecorating in the style of an old Chinese restaurant — that are just a few degrees stranger than reality.”
