Street Graphics New York (Street Graphics / Street Art)

Street Graphics New York (Street Graphics / Street Art)

by Barry Dawson (Author)


New York is the world capital of street graphics - a creative kaleidoscope of urban ephemera in the form of signs, symbols, graffiti, murals and advertising. Its innovative ideas, styles and mediums quickly become international. This volume documents the emotionally charged street imagery of the city post-September 11th. New York landmarks are represented in chic fashion advertising on iconic tourist souvenirs. Ethnic diversity is signified through a cultural smorgasbord of restaurant signs. Jazz Age vitality, brash 60s Pop Art, hip graffiti, stencil and sticker art - throughout, Barry Dawson portrays the energy and humanity of New York through visual themes that surprise, intrigue and amuse. Here is a sourcebook for designers, a quirky visitors' guide and a historical document of a time that changed New York, America and the world.
