Everything Is Its Own RewardBook - 2011
A new collection from the author of the San Francisco Chronicle series "All Over Coffee" captures cityscapes in pen and ink drawings in a visual exploration of place and memory.
"mesmerizing . . . When his international images are paired with his sparse, poetic wordssometimes thought-provoking one-liners such as 'You don't get anywhere without searching' and sometimes long, meandering sections of dialogue and storythe effect is haunting."-- Oprah.com
Beginning with his hometown of San Francisco and traveling to cities such as Paris, Rome, Buenos Aires, and Tokyo, Paul Madonna delivers his second body of drawings and writings. This stunning new collection, a testament to an artist and storyteller's careful observation of both the external and internal worlds, outdoes the masterful performance of his first book All Over Coffee, offering an even richer catalog of pen and ink cityscapes, short stories, conversations, and thoughts. Entertaining and moving, gorgeous to look at, Madonna's work remains unique and unclassifiable. This full color, hardbound edition comes complete with a removable poster.
