As creative director at limited edition book publisher, Gloria, I produced ‘New York’ — a supersized biography narrating the 500-year history of the world’s most famous metropolis, from its rural beginnings in the early sixteenth-century right through to the bustling urban centre that it is today. The book covers every aspect of the New York story, including its architecture, design, art, fashion, music, film, television, dance and sport. With 33 chapters, 756 pages, 100,000 words and 1,500 photographs, it comprises the largest collection of art, photography and writing ever assembled on the subject. It features contributions from writers such as David Remnick, John Updike, Don Delillo, Tom Wolfe, Gay Talese, Colson Whitehead and Paul Goldberger, and photographers such as Berenice Abbott, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Edward Steichen, Diane Arbus, David Bailey, Patrick Demarchelier, Helmut Newton, Norman Parkinson and Annie Leibovitz. The book was produced in giant format (42cms x 32cms), and was limited to 1000 individually numbered copies. Click the link below to read The Guardian's review of the book.
