Robinson is the pen name of a German illustrator, Werner Kruse, who in 1967 produced a book of ink drawings that show New York City's skyline and neighborhoods in intense detail. He described it as "an X-ray" style that showed the city's buildings from outside and inside.The book, originally called "New York," was reissued in 2009 as "New York, Line by Line: From Broadway to the Battery." A review in New York magazine described the drawings as "scrupulously accurate, down to the tiny tripartite cornices on the brownstones." Born in Berlin in 1910 and taking his name from the children's story "Robinson Crusoe," Robinson also made a similar book about Tokyo. He died in 1994.
