An incredible accordion-folded gift book that features a panoramic portrait of the island of Manhattan, seen from both the East River and the Hudson River
The Manhattan skyline has always held a unique allure in the world’s imagination. At street level, the scale of the city is dynamic and shifting, from towering skyscrapers to intimate pocket parks and older side streets. At a certain distance, the outline of the city is revealed. Traveling the length of Manhattan by boat, along the two rivers that surround the island, photographer Laurent Dequick shows us the city unfurling in a spectacular accordion-folded book. On one side of the book we follow along a continuous panoramic view from the Hudson River; on the other we take in the view from the East River.
Manhattan Skyline reveals a new look at New York City, featuring stunning photographs alongside captions to identify key landmarks and an index of the main buildings and districts. A foreword by Adam Gopnik sets the stage.
