Description

Street Graphics New York documents the emotionally charged street imagery of the city post-September 11th. New York landmarks are represented in chic fashion advertising and on iconic tourist souvenirs. Ethnic diversity is signified through a cultural smorgasbord of restaurant signs. Jazz Age vitality, brash Sixties Pop Art, hip graffiti, stencil and sticker art - throughout, Barry Dawson's skilled eye portrays the energy and humanity of New York through visual themes that surprise, intrigue, and amuse. Here is a rich sourcebook for designers, a quirky visitors' guide, and a historical document of a time that changed New York, America, and the world.
