Jerusalem: Chronicles from the Holy City

As usual, Guy Delisle makes a far flung place feel very accessible, although perhaps not physically so.  He brings an even mix of experiences any traveler in Jerusalem could have or observe with those specific to his own profession as an animator and cartoonist.  It usually has a very mellow tone with occasional pointedness, much like the drawings.  He has poise and timing.  He knows when to let the images speak for themselves or even contradict.  He is very consistent although the material of each place is anything but.  So as usual, it is a great pleasure to read.
