"Pledging to draw every building there was, he says it was his way of "remapping" the city into a more personal cartography. The result is a colorful, charming collection of what Hancock has seen and captured...Hancock's illustrations aren't labored with detail, but do offer fine points that bring out what is special in each building he chooses to render...this book is a lovely way to embrace the tangible.."
