New York: A Mod Portrait of the City 1960s book
The promise of original 1960s illustrations of New York City are probably enough in themselves to get us wanting to pick up a book, but there's also a fantastic story behind New York: A Mod Portrait of the City.
What you get is a charming insight into the Big Apple as it looked in the early 1960s, depicted through Fuka's colourful illustrations and collages, along with fun facts and witty observations provided by Mahler. Over its 128 pages, the book visits many spots still on the tourist's itinerary today, from the Guggenheim to the Yankee Stadium, Wall Street to Coney Island, as well as capturing this particular moment of time in this city that never stops.
