“Pledging to draw every building there was, he says it was his way of “remapping” the city into a more personal cartography. The result is a colorful, charming collection of what Hancock has seen and captured…Hancock’s illustrations aren’t labored with detail, but do offer fine points that bring out what is special in each building he chooses to render…this book is a lovely way to embrace the tangible..” ~North Adams Transcript

All the Buildings in New York is an ongoing project and this book can be said to be born out of that. On his blog, he posts regularly of the buildings he drew. He hasn't reach all yet, hence the asterisk in the title, but he has managed to capture many of the iconic and also unknown ones. The book has only 64 pages.
His style is simple and beautiful. There's a sort of cartoon vibe about the line work and colours. Even the non-eye catching ones have their own charm when presented as sketches. It's a pretty fun book to check out the diverse architectural styles.
Of course there are the iconic buildings like Woolworth Building, New York Times Building, Hook and Ladder 8 where Ghostbusters was filmed, , Time Square, St Patrick's Cathedral, Chrysler Building, Rockefeller Center, Empire State Building, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and more.
There are also the residential buildings that line the busy streets of Manhattan.
Nice book to collect if you're into sketchbooks.
