Pyle rose to prominence in March after he posted an album of explainer GIFs that tackled topics like how to use revolving doors and what to do before entering New York’s subway,
Along with the GIFs detailing his book deal, Pyle shared 12 new etiquette GIFs explaining what food is subway appropriate, how to park, and the differences between the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building. The Imgur album has collected 166,000 views after reaching Reddit’s front page this morning.
“Reddit is tremendously powerful—though I’d say posts are more hits-than-misses for even the best artists,” Pyle wrote on Reddit. “We’re creating a standard print version and an animated e-book version for compatible readers (e.g. the iPad is currently compatible).”
Pyle is thinking of expanding his guide to other cities like Chicago. His book, NYC Basic Tips And Etiquette, is due out this spring.
