when i saw this article on New York Times, i knew i had to post this since i love New York. although i still haven't been there, i am still in love with that city. Matteo Pericoli asks well-known New Yorkers to describe what they see from their windows and he has put together a book of his drawings "The City Out My Window: 63 Views on New York".
here are some of the drawings that's in the book...
david byrne, musician & artist
mario batali, chef
john berendt, writer
junot diaz, writer
kurt andersen, novelist & radio host
mark morris, choreographer
megan o'rourke, poet
mikhail baryshnikov, dancer & choreographer & actor
nicole krauss, writer
peter sis, artist
philip glass, composer
rosanne cash, musician & writer
by seeing all these sketches makes me want to sketch the view we have from our window...i'll have to put that on my "to do" list ^_^.
it's a great coffee table book to have. i'm going to have to put this book on my "to buy" list. (yes, i seem to like to make "lists" and the best part about the making lists is crossing them off since it's been "completed".)
