Book Club: Everyone Loves New York by Leslie Jonath
Maybe it’s because we just published a big book about cashmere (with Callwey Verlag). But despite online magazines and e-books the Allude team’s wish list is full of books. The old fashioned kind! Stories that guide us to worlds far away, biographies introducing us to extraordinary people – and amazing picture books to feast our eyes on.
Looking for a gorgeous book for your coffee table or for a dear friend who fell in love with the city that never sleeps? Well, look no further then „Everyone loves New York“ (teNeues), created by Leslie Jonath and featuring joyful and whimsical illustrations by renowned artists from around the world. Each of them brings her or his very own style and artistic angle to iconic landmarks and sceneries – from the Empire State Building to the Brooklyn Bridge, from Fifth to Madison Avenue and right into Central Park. Yellow cabs, food trucks, it’s all there. A wonderful Xmas gift idea!
Need more ideas for that special frankophile in your life? Well, there’s also „Everyone Loves Paris“, created by the same team!
