    "In his new book All The Buildings In New York, Hancock assembles his charming and extensive drawings of some of the Big Apple’s most iconic buildings, as well as some more unfamiliar ones, into 64 pages of colorful illustrations.

    "...takes you through New York's famed neighborhood with facts about the iconic buildings, and also shows the beauty of some of NYC's nameless, everyday structures." ~Business Insider
     
    “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
