    Seth does some Marvel Superhero drawing in this, which I found really surprising I d love to see him do a retro 50s superhero comic I love the production value of this book I really enjoy just holding it But of course, a nice book is useless with out good content Seth delivers some really awesome full page drawings here.

    Seth doesn t like drawing eyes and feet Feet, I understand, and yet he renders them quite well His buildings are superb In the middle of this handsome sketchbook circa 2000 , he started to avoid eyes Subsequent group shots have 3 4 of the people wearing opaque glasses or caught restfully mid blink The quantity of blinkers lend quiet grace to the pages But I can t help but notice roughly one set of minimal eyes in every group of eight For groups of four, everyone is blinking or wearing glasses Pre 2000, he does expressive eyes well Post 2000, blink, blink, glasses, blink, glasses, two tiny eye dots, and blink I wonder if he got bored with eyes, hates them, felt he spent too much time on them for paltry reward, etc What s the rationale, Seth Regardless, this is solid work.

    Vernacular Drawings doesn t give me much insight into Seth other than he likes to sketch old yearbook photos and deserted downtown streets I was hoping the sketchbook would include images that broke the norm or were personal Instead the book is just a polished collection of well drawn people and locations I mean, that s not necessarily a bad thing I just feel that Vernacular Drawings could have provided of a revelation see Chris Ware s sketchbooks with detailed masturbatory images

    Certainly a must have for the Seth aficionado, but not required reading either Rather, it fills out what already exists as Seth s primary drive amongst his published works an intense interest in the paper archive of human life, representations of which are beautifully rendered on the page Necessarily lavish, a true pleasure.

    What I love than anything is cartoons that have a real feel to them a past a history.
