Animator and cartoonist Gary Leib delivers a short history of Manhattan's Meatpacking District for the NY Times.
UPDATE: Gary was kind enough to send me a few stills from the piece, and also tells me that this animation is the first of four created for the Times. Each piece is about a minute long, and is a very personal take on different parts of NY. The original score is by NY based jazz genius Michael Hashim. So stay tuned to the NYTimes.com for more!
We're in the process of making a few enhancements to the website here, one of which was launched today: now you can select to search our products by title only, or by full description, by checking the buttons that say "Titles" or "All" respectively on our Product Search bar to the left. (Before, you had to go to our Advanced Search page to narrow your search like this.) We hope this makes finding what you're looking for just a bit quicker and easier!
Reviews and commentary found 'round the Web this week:
