Product Overview

A TIMELESS MEDITATION ON ART AND COMMERCE SEEN THROUGH THE LIFE OF AN EARLY-TWENTIETH-CENTURY JEWISH RUG MAKER

Mendleman's life goes through an upheaval when he discovers that he can no longer earn a living for his growing family doing the work that defines him--making well-crafted rugs by hand. A proud artisan, he takes his donkey-drawn cart to the market only to be turned away when the distinctive shop he once sold to now stocks only cheaply manufactured merchandise. As the realities of the marketplace sink in, Mendleman unravels. James Sturm draws a quiet, reflective, and beautiful portrait of eastern Europe in the early 1900s-bringing to life the hustle and bustle of an Old World marketplace on the brink of industrialization.Market Day is an ageless tale of how economic and social forces can affect a single life.

An award-winning cartoonist of the books Golem's Mighty Swing, James Sturm's America,Satchel Paige: Striking Out Jim Crow, and Adventures in Cartooning, Sturm is a true visionary, having cofounded the Seattle alternative weeklyThe Stranger and the Center for Cartoon Studies, the country's premier cartooning school.
