More Quay covers

My copy of Suzanne Buchan's The Quay Brothers: Into A Metaphysical Playroom arrived yesterday, and it includes a page of book covers designed by the Quays (see this post). Unfortunately the images are tiny black and white thumbnails, but these are the few I've managed to track down online.

Please excuse the infrequent updates for the time being; I'm trying to get as much art and music done as possible while I have the chance.

Above are a few New York Times Op-ed illustrations found in two issues of Graphis (158 and 180). Unfortunately I didn't have time to make a note of any more information before I returned them. I've always found this kind of black and white, mostly pen and ink work appealing and infinitely preferable to the slightly twee, 1950s-retro look that's so prevalent in editorial illustration nowadays. I'm also intrigued by what little I've seen of Anita Siegel's collage pieces.
