Trained as an architect, SaulMoreThis unique book about one of Americas most recognizable graphic artists explores a significant yet often overlooked aspect of Steinbergs oeuvre--his vibrant depictions of architecture in the United States and beyond.

Trained as an architect, Saul Steinberg never pursued the discipline itself, yet his graphic works are filled with the language of architecture: lines, perspective, geometry, and, of course, a plethora of buildings themselves. Architecture was not only his muse but also the lens through which he observed, celebrated, and critiqued American society. Filled with reproductions of Steinbergs witty, perceptive drawings, this volume celebrates the artists endless fascination with Americas public and private spaces, from cityscapes to his beloved altered maps, and from landmark buildings to roadside diners.

Steinbergs complex relationship with Americas urban landscape offers a prescient understanding of the nations limits and possibilities.
