Weekly Book Special: September 7th-September 13th

Last Friday, September 3rd, marked Skyscraper Day — a celebration of the world’s tallest buildings. To commemorate, this week’s book special focuses on New York’s world-famous skyline:


Manhattan Within

Written and Illustrated by Matteo Pericoli
Slipcase in original shrinkwrap, 72 pages, 2003, ISBN: 0375508686
List Price: $30.00, OUR PRICE: $9.95
Manhattan Within

This set by Matteo Pericoli, the best-selling artist-architect of “Manhattan Unfurled” (Our Price: $30.00) includes: A full-color 22-foot-long drawing, in an accordion fold-out format, which provides an amazing 360-degree view of the Manhattan skyline as seen from within Central Park.

Includes a separate, enlightening personal journal about the method, philosophy, and evolution of the work — an unprecedented, dramatic re-envisioning of the relationship between the city and its geographical center and escape. A visual legend and diagram identifies the city’s landmarks and streets.

Watch the CBS Sunday Morning clip on Pericoli’s artistic process (click to watch):

“[Pericoli’s] prose, as it turns out, is as evocative as his art,” writes Booklist in a review.

Pericoli writes: “When I was working on the skyline along the edge of the island, [the buildings] were giving their backs to me as if they didn’t care. From the park all the buildings seem to look at me. I think this is the real skyline of Manhattan.”

This book is discounted only through September 13th. Purchase it for $9.95 (list price $30.00):
