Saul Steinberg, The Line, 1954/2011, The Saul Steinberg Foundation, New York

This simple accordion is taken up with Steinberg's meandering line/drawing that branches off from a central line that runs the entire publication. The original drawing (see above) was designed and incised on a wall in the Children's Labyrinth that was constructed for the 10th Triennial of Milan in 1954. Long known for his drawings in the New Yorker and his own peculiar brand of landscapes, this publication is pure and undiluted Steinberg — with humorous attention paid to the front and back covers. 10" (H) 18' 3/4" (L)
