In addition, it features over two hundred of Bob's beautiful illustrations.

It is a new, unread first edition opened only for signing and comes with a certificate authenticating the signature. Published in September, 2018 by Phaidon Press.


BOB ECKSTEIN (pictured below from our Wall of Fame) is our favorite cartoonist/illustrator/writer/artist whose work has been featured in The New Yorker, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Playboy, and more than a dozen other respected publications. He formerly taught at The School of Visual Arts and the Pratt Institute. An insight into his coolness is that he and his wife eloped - to Iceland! Thank you Bob Eckstein for signing our books.


THIS VIDEO was taken at Bob's office as he furiously signed our six hundred first printings of his previous book Footnotes from the World's Greatest Bookstores so they would reach the store by pub date.
