During the Friday morning breakfast at the 2019 Winter Institute, lucky bookstore Amy’s Bookcase in Farmington, New Mexico, won the opportunity to have New Yorker cartoonist Bob Eckstein create a custom illustration of the store.

Eckstein was at Winter Institute to promote his new book, The Illustrated History of the Snowman: A Pictorial Celebration (Globe Pequot Press). Many booksellers know Eckstein from his 2016 title, Footnotes From the World’s Greatest Bookstores: True Tales and Lost Moments From Book Buyers, Booksellers, and Book Lovers (Clarkson Potter).

During the institute, Eckstein illustrated a number of events, including the following:
