New York Is… The Metropolitan Museum of Art

New York Is... The Metropolitan Museum of Art

Through it’s 180 images by painters, photographers, architects and fashion designers (all from the collection of The Metropolitan Museum of Art) New York Is... hopes to paint an evocative picture of New York, shown through the various perspectives of some the worlds greatest creative figures.

As an unashamed fan of Manhattan, and a sucker for most things NY, the images throughout this book don’t need to try very hard to win me over, but it’s mini 17 x 14cm dimensions steal most of their impact, and it’s simple list format place this book firmly in a gift category. A simple case of style over substance, and given the wealth of bigger and better books available on this amazing city it’s a tough one to recommend. But maybe while you’re waiting in airport limbo before visiting the real thing, this might just be the hand-luggage friendly taster you’re looking for.
