saul steinberg

over the weekend i came across the drawings of saul steinberg. simple lines full of life and humor and a bit of satire, i just love his work. 

for many years he was an illustrator for the new yorker, creating nearly 100 covers for the publication. additionally he worked in the mediums of sculpture and photography. his drawings capture the rawness of the everyday - the vast majority of his work is done between the mid '40's through the mid '80's it feels as poignant as ever. 

i happily acquired "the art of living" 1949, this weekend and have loved paging through the book - a favorite section: a montage of his chair drawings in the first section.
