    The third in a series of collected short stories from Drawn & Quarterly by the legendary Japanese cartoonist, whose previous work has been selected for several annual 'top 10' lists, including those compiled by Amazon and Time.com. Drawn in 1971 and 1972, these stories expand the prolific artist's vocabulary for characters contextualized by themes of depravity and disorientation in 20th-century Japan. A philanthropic foot fetishist, a rat-ridden retiree, and a lonely public onanist are but a few of the characters etching out darkly nuanced lives in the midst of isolated despair and fleeting pleasure. Black-and-white illustrations throughout. 208p.

This lavish, beautifully designed volume collects every cover, comic, and illustration that he has produced for The New Yorker to date, along with an assortment of other rare and uncollected illustrations and sketches inspired by the city. Complete with notes and annotations by the author, New York Drawings will also feature a new introductory comic focusing on Tomine’s experiences as a New York illustrator.

    Lauded for its provocative and insightful portrayal of interpersonal relationships, Adrian Tomine's politically charged Shortcomings was one of the most acclaimed books of 2007. The story of Ben Tanaka, a confused Japanese-American male in his late twenties, and his cross-country search for contentment (or at least the perfect girl), Tomine, along the way, tackles modern culture, social mores, and racial politics with brutal honesty and lacerating, irreverent humor, while deftly bringing to life a cast of authentically real antihero characters. Black-and-white illustrations throughout. 104p.
