Manhatitlan: Mexican and American Cultures Intertwined by Felipe Galindo Published by Jorge Pinto Books. Introduction by Peter Canby, The New Yorker. 56 pg., 8.5 x 5.5", full color. "Feggo's work stands in the rich tradition of Mexico's socially engaged art, an art that strives, using humor and irony, to make sense out of our beautiful and ever more baffling world." -From the Introduction by Peter Canby "What a wicked sense of humor Galindo has. Mexican artifacts enact absurd acts of revenge on Big Apple institutions, a bit like anti-imperialist New Yorker cartoons." -The Washington Post "Galindo's appealing images superimpose Mexican icons over the New York cityscape, in a playful nod to the multiculturalism that helps make the city great." -Time Out New York

“It is a rare cartoonist who appeals to such diverse readerships as The New Yorker, the Reader’s Digest, Barron’s, and Nickelodeon, to name just a few of the magazines where the widely published Felipe Galindo’s cartoons can be found. As cartoon editor of TheNew Yorker I especially enjoy Felipe’s carefully constructed sight gags, whose wordless humor unites all demographics in laughter.” — Bob Mankoff, Cartoon Editor, The New Yorker
