About the Author

Ben Katchor lives in New York, where he is an Associate Professor at Parsons School of Design-The New School. As director of Parsons' Illustration program, he runs The New York Comics & Picture-story Symposium, a weekly lecture series for the study of text-image work. He has been the recipient of both a Guggenheim Fellowship and a MacArthur Fellowship. Along with his long-running comic-strip work-Julius Knipl, Real-Estate Photographer, The Cardboard Valise, Hotel & Farm, The Jew of New York, and a monthly strip for Metropolis magazine-Katchor has also collaborated with musician Mark Mulcahy on a number of works for musical theatre, including The Slug Bearers of Kayrol Island, The Rosenbach Company, A Checkroom Romance, and Up From the Stacks.


Ben Katchor's sublime collectionchronicles the wanderings of Julius Knipl, a rumpled photographer-for-hire taking pictures of buildings in a gently surreal streetscape that vaguely resembles Manhattan's financial district of old. Knipl laments a fading world of dairy cafeterias, tchotchke salesmen and trophy manufacturers. -Wall Street Journal
