Plot Summary
Adrian Tomine's Scrapbook is divided into three parts. The first section contains short stories Tomine wrote and drew for various magazines (as well as some unfinished pieces), the second section contains spot illustrations Tomine drew for clients such as the New Yorker as well as some album covers and fliers, and the third section contains sketchbook material.

My Own 2 Cents
For fans of Tomine this is an important book, but if you're new to his work I would suggest starting elsewhere (perhaps with Shortcomings or Sleepwalk and Other Stories). It's particularly interesting to read alternate versions of a few stories that appeared (in slightly different forms) in Tomine's other collections. And it's nice to have Tomine's various spot illustrations under one cover.
