Mark Podwal may have been best known initially for his drawings on The New York Times Op-Ed page. In addition, he is the author and illustrator of numerous books. Most of these works - Podwal's own as well as those he has illustrated for others - typically focus on Jewish history, tradition, and legend. His art is represented in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Israel Museum, Prague's National Gallery, the Jewish Museums in Berlin, Vienna, Prague, and New York, among many other venues.
We were thrilled when Mark Podwal created this special limited-edition poster for the Yiddish Book Center’s 40th Anniversary.
