Drawn to Read

Ward Sutton, whose cartoons and illustrations I first encountered in the pages of The New Yorker, writes a monthly column for the Barnes & Noble Review. His December column was a series of postcards highlighting the most notable books of 2010 (in his opinion; not sure I agree). It’s a delicious read for both the eye and the mind.

There are several books listed here that I passed over as uninteresting, based on more traditional reviews. Sutton’s drawings, and the blurbs he chose from book reviewers, are intriguing, though.

I’m printing this out, and taking it with me on my next trip to the local library.
