Cartoonist and author Bob Eckstein has landed a book deal with the Potter Style imprint at Random House.
The new project, entitled Footnotes From the World’s Greatest Bookstores, was inspired by Eckstein’s “Bookstores of New York” series. The New Yorker published “part 1” in June and “part 2” earlier this week.
With this work, Eckstein will illustrate and write about the unusual histories behind several beloved independent bookstores. Senior editor Jay Sacher negotiated the deal with Joy Tutela of the David Black Literary Agency.
