Cities provide infinite sources of inspiration. Carlo Stanga's I Am the City series animates the cultural and economic production of prominent metropolises.
Following editions on Milan and London, Stanga leads readers on a tour of New York, paying tribute to local lifestyle, landmarks, parks, and architecture. His playful illustrations and intimate anecdotes showcase the personalities of cities and the idiosyncrasies that make them unique. From the Chrysler Building to the bagel, I Am New York is an illustrated journey of the Big Apple like no other. Stanga's love letter to New York captures the magic of the city.
