Cristoph Niemann’s work is silently ubiquitous. Well known for Abstract City, an opinion column he ran (until recently) for the New York Times, Niemann now creates Abstract Sunday – a blog that mirrors the content of Abstract City in illustrative form (Let it Dough and the recent To Run or Not to Run are particular favourites). Better news, for all of us, is that Niemann’s work regularly graces covers elsewhere (pictured is The New Yorker’s most recent issue), and right it should.
