Chwast illustrated “The Pancake King” back in 1971 but it’s been out of print since the early 1980s. Princeton Architectural Press has brought it back, complete with a kid-friendly pancake recipe (with a new Chwast illustration) addendum. It’s as vibrant and lovely as ever, and is a wonderful showcase of Chwast’s signature, era-defining style.
Paula Scher wrote (but did not illustrate) “The Brownstone” back in 1973. It’s a very New York-centric story of six families (cats, kangaroos, owls, mice, pigs, bears, and an owl as the landlord) living in a single browstone and what it takes for them to coexist. Most of the story is illustrated in a cutaway style that shows the tenants moving around the building.
My kids have been enjoying both books, but for several nights running they kept asking for me to re-read “The Brownstone,” sometimes repeatedly, if that tells you anything.+
