The Book of the Future


This drawing appears in The New York Times Sunday Book Review! See it larger in the digital Times or in the print edition on newsstands today (4/1). My vision for the future involves lava lamps, egg chairs, and outfits that would look great in a B-52s music video.

Excellent use of the contrasting red/green colour scheme against neutral backgrounds.

I saw this in the Times and have worked it into at least 1 conversation a day since!
Including a job interview at a publishing company (wish me luck!)
If I get the job (hoping!!!) I think part of my first paycheck will be heading to your poster store. :-)

How does the process of a comic such as this work? Was it NYT's idea or yours? Do you work with them on the idea? Does it pair with a particular story? I'm really curious.

Awesome comic. My thoughts exactly when kindles and tablets began to be used. Those devices are good for "fun reading" books if you ask me. Serious readers would still use traditional books for the sake of having -gasp- writing and understanding the text.
