Ben Katchor: Window-Shopping on Remission Avenue

From Metropolis Magazine: Ben Katchor writes and draws a one-pager about those heavy clear plastic partitions that act as shields between the patron and business owner. In my old neighborhood in Brooklyn, we had them in the subway, the liquor store, the OTB and the bank.

"The design implies that each customer is capable of having violent intentions toward the clerk."
