The Wonder, Portraits of a Remembered City, Volume 1 by Tony Fitzpatrick
Tony Fitzpatrick spins magical tales from his own history and that of his beloved city via drawing-collages, vivid combinations of drawing, text and applied elements like matchbooks, postcards, gambling slips and ballgame stubs. In this gorgeous book, Fitzpatrick introduces the first set of drawing-collages as chapters in an ongoing project that is both personal diary and chronicle of Chicago. Includes 35 color plates.

“Tony is so full of heart, life, and truth, that after you spend a few hours with this book, I think it’s safe to say you grew up in Chicago. It’s safe to say you lived in Tony’s heart. It’s all on these pages.”
