In a very simple, yet brilliant, way Christoph Niemann manages to capture the funny and sometimes bizarre aspects of everyday life.
From trying to get a good night’s sleep to dealing with appliance cables, his love-hate relationship with coffee and the issue of comfort on a economy class flight, Niemann visually recreates these scenarios is various creative ways.
Since 2008 Niemann has been sharing his observations in a visual blog, titled “Abstract City” for the New York Times. And now a book, also titled Abstract City, presents 16 original posts from the blog, as well as a new, exclusively created, chapter.
Abstract City is published by Abrams Books and guarantees a delightful flight of visual fantasy.
