To celebrate the launch of D C-T! by Joana Avillez and Molly Young, we will be showing original illustrations by Avillez from the book, available for purchase. Both Avillez and Young will be present for signing.
Using the phonetic language originated by William Steig in his classic CDB!, this illustrated book serves as a unique guide to the nuances of New York City life. Molly Young’s cleverly coded declarations paired with Avillez’s timeless ink and watercolour illustrations, D C-T! is filled with humor and urban quirks. Crafting a perfect experience of what it really means to be a New Yorker, we see both the romance and grittiness of the special city of NY.
