Produktinformation

Produktbeschreibungen

Pressestimmen

"In this exquisite second collection from his long-running weekly San Francisco Chronicle series All Over Coffee, Madonna captures snapshots in time as he explores the relationship between image and text, with a mixture of single- and multi-panel strips all presented vertically. Completely devoid of people but never of life, each panel revolves around a geographical setting, from recognizable landmarks like the Golden Gate Bridge to an anonymous block that's so gorgeously rendered in Madonna's precise yet fluid pen-and-ink style, it feels like it could be anywhere and everywhere. The integration of text—from snippets of fiction and autobiography to single sentences stretching across panels—is as deliberate as the pen strokes and ink washes, and as essential to grasping the complete picture. Though there are no conventional narrative arcs, Madonna continually revisits such themes as place and memory as he deconstructs the traditional storytelling elements in this 'comic strip without the comic, whose main and only character [is] setting.' With pieces depicting San Francisco, New York, Barcelona, and Tokyo, Madonna's work is something to savor, because, as the artist writes, you 'want to absorb every moment of this, enjoy every second.'"
Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"The book is fantastic. Of time and tenderness. Beautiful drawings. Beautiful text. Ethereal and serious at once. The book is its own reward."
Maira Kalman, author of And the Pursuit of Happiness

"In Everything is its Own Reward, Paul Madonna has not only pressed graphic fiction way beyond its present boundaries, he has created a new and stunning art form where the stand-alone brilliant visuals and the hauntingly human words synthesize into a pure and irreducible aesthetic vision. This book taught me something fundamental and true and beautiful about the ineffable thereness and thingness of life. Everything is its Own Reward is a work of genius."
Robert Olen Butler, author of A Good Scent from a Strange Mountain

"You don't have to have lived in or loved San Francisco to fall under the spell of Madonna's mysterious and largely unpeopled cityscapes. San Francisco isn't the only place he draws with the miraculously exquisite attention on display here (Paris, Rome and Buenos Ares also appear) but something about the fog off the bay makes it particularly well suited to his dreamy and surprisingly emotional pen-and-ink images. Madonna eschews well-known and much-photographed places in favor of the spaces between old Victorians, neglected corners, intersections that seem to cant dangerously into space, vistas of rooftops bristling with pipes and ganglia-like clusters of power lines, all paired with short enigmatic stories and reflections on art, memory and love. This book is the second collection of 'All Over Coffee,' a 'strip' Madonna draws for the Sunday arts section of the San Francisco Chronicle. There's also a free app, too, if you'd like to see a sample, but only paper can do justice to the eerie radiance of Madonna's artwork, and the cumulative effect of its 176 pages is ravishing."
— Laura Miller, Salon.com

"Paul Madonna is a pen master. His work is difficult to categorize but that he was MAD magazine's first art intern may help explain his ability to capture human experience in its odd fullness. In his All Over Coffee comic strip, published in the San Francisco Chronicle since 2004, Madonna's evocative pen-and-ink drawings of cityscapes are accompanied by handwritten bits of overheard conversations, mini-stories, and zen-ish musings like: 'It takes perpetual work to keep life simple.' The new anthology Everything Is Its Own Reward: An All Over Coffee Collection (City Lights) is a treasure chest that comes with a pullout poster inside."
Boston Globe

"One flip of the page and you’ll be hooked on his melancholy world of beauty, stillness, and reflection."
— 7x7

"In Paul Madonna's San Francisco, which is ours too, the frisson of recognition feels like a reason to live. I know where that is, we say, meaning the geographic as well as the psychic space in Madonna's ongoing All Over Coffee series of pen-and-ink snapshots. We've all been there, or wanted to be. It's a city of possibility, the pictures suggest, in which it really makes good sense to 'Leave a little emptiness/A space/for when what you're waiting for/arrives.'

"In addition to the many lovely images and a briefly annotating afterword, the book also has a poster folded up inside its back cover, wherein he gazes at some brutalist-anonymous apartment building — on Russian Hill, maybe? — and suggests vital details of the lives going on inside it: 'Lies about owning a TV' or 'Starts every sentence with "I feel like"' or 'Lobbies government agencies and airlines to provide family and nonfamily flights so that people without children can fly without having to listen to screaming kids.' Hey, look: It's us."
SF Weekly

"It's not the spirit of any particular place that Madonna captures so well but rather a quality of life, a state of mind, predicated on the luxury of having an existence in which the only dramas to speak of are personal."
Art Practical

"Madonna gets an extra chills-up-the-spine boost from his illustrations of semi-familiar San Francisco architecture and intersections, lucid as etchings of bleached Kodachrome shots."
San Francisco Bay Guardian

The first compilation of All Over Coffee came out in 2007. This second volume is a wonderful continuation from where the first left off.

The art is as beautiful, evocative. I've never visited San Francisco, but I will, after looking at these stunning illustrations, I must.

This is a sketchbook I go back to often just to admire the meticulous lines Paul Madonna has put down. Each scene has an allure that captivates and holds my attention. There's a lot to see, even if the composition was already chosen.

The illustrations have evolved since the first volume. They have now taken a more photographic format towards 4 by 6. Each drawing now fills the entire page. It's tremendously satisfying to see the architectural details in large sizes. Looking at them almost feels like you're visiting the actual place.

The book also comes with a pull out poster, which I think isn't the best selection, after seeing the available choices. The afterword is an inspiring read where Paul Madonna talks about his work and process.

This is probably a book you can never finish reading because you'll always be going back to it. I love this book. It's definitely near the top of my list of favourite art books from 2011.

Highly recommended.

HASH(0x959073a8) von 5 Sternen Wry Wit and Architectural Art 3. Mai 2011
Von Dr. Debra Jan Bibel - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
The drawings within this book are not the first time I encountered them; being a San Francisco Chronicle subcriber, I saw them when first published Sunday after Sunday. Seeing them as a collection, however, once again establishes Paul Madonna as both artist and writer, a humanist and a wry wit. I own his first book of similar art and find this new grouping even better, and that first volume was already grand. Indeed, I purchased a signed special reproduction of his #496, which hangs in my studio. The old Victorians that pervade many San Francisco neighborhoods make interesting subjects of study. Madonna originally focused on the roof and upper stories, providing new perspectives on what were taken for granted, but in this second collection street level is also often presented. Thus, I offer my unbridled recommendation of this book to anyone who loves city life, who has been to San Francisco, who admires the art of drawing, and who is open to insights about themselves and about social interactions. Madonna is becoming a Bay Area treasure.

HASH(0x95908e90) von 5 Sternen Stories told with evocative urban imagery 12. April 2015
Von Green Stone - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I'm an artist always seeking inspiration from other artists. This book was right up my alley --- I love the juxtaposition of artwork with text, some way of telling a story with a combination of words and images. My preference tends to be for art that is very gestural, loose, and tending towards completely abstract, so that the photo-realist drawings which are Madonna's style are generally not my "cup of tea" -- but what I liked so much about much of his work, is that the images are often moody and use unusual perspectives or framing. So, the result is very similar to artistic black and white photography -- but more subjective and personal than photography can be, as it has the hand's touch. Many of the images are powerful and will have me coming back to them again and again because of their unique perspective, or the evocative framing of the subject.

What is so ironic and unusual about this book, is that there are no people in ANY of the drawings, except, I believe, the 3rd from the last on pg 218 which has what looks like a person, but her head is turned away so no face is visible. (And San Francisco is full of people -- every time I visit I invariably think of the city as quite crowded!) However, nearly the entire text is about other people -- narratives of meetings with people, conversations with people, wonderings about people -- so this is an unusual juxtaposition. The result is that you get the feeling that this artist feels cut off from people, somewhat isolated, even while in the midst of others, and so you think maybe he is like these urban images, people-less on the inside, while surrounded by relationships and people in the densely packed city of San Francisco.

This is an amazing look at San Francisco - even has a picture of the home in which I was raised. I bought one for my brother and 4 sisters (and for myself, of course!) and they loved them as well. Thank you, Mr. Madonna!,,,,VERY WELL DONE!

Oh how I absolutely love this book. I purchased this book and all over coffee for an art project I was working on. He inspired me, seeing his art work, reading he little passages, it moved something in me (as cheesy as that sounds). I'm so beyond happy that I bought this book. It's wonderful!!
