Brooklyn (re)view

C-SPAN’s Book TV aired this evening an interview with distinguished pen-&-ink illustrator David Levine, known foremost for his long relationship with the New York Review of Books. His recently published American Presidents (Fantagraphics) provides the interview’s connecting fabric, his home in Brooklyn the location. He talks readily about a little bit of everything — his views on politics & on some figures who’ve been his subjects, his technique on paper & canvas, his early life & life as a public figure, his present health & work, &c. You can stream it at Book TV’s site — in small format only, it appears, unfortunately.
