An extraordinary and classic graphic novel celebrating the Big Apple, from the master of American comics art.
With an unparalleled eye for stories and expressive illustration, Will Eisner, the master and pioneer of American comics art, presents one of his renowned celebrations of the Big Apple. No illustrator evoked the melancholy duskiness of New York City as expressively as Eisner, who knew the city from the bottom up.
The Building is a story filled with ghosts, and a testament to our greatest human qualities—a deeply moving chronicle of a city building and the people who inhabited it.
