Overview

Matteo Pericoli began his spectacular drawing of Manhattan in 1998. Manhattan Unfurled was published in October 2001 and was quickly embraced by New York City and the entire country. In this new version for young people, the drawing is bound into two sections (East Side and West Side) in an unusual and eye-catching new format. Pericoli adds simple text, and hand-drawn labels, telling young readers how he came to create his drawing (the journey includes boat rides, a motorcycle, and hundreds of photographs). He also enourages kids to see—and draw—a place in a whole new way. “Draw everything,” he tells them, “and you’ll know a place as you never did before.” A wonderful tribute to Manhattan, to cities, and to thinking like an artist.

Praise for Matteo Pericoli’s Manhattan Unfurled (Random House adult trade):

“Pericoli has fixed a moment of the ever-shifting skyline, and done so with delicacy and authority.”—The New York Times Book Review

“Pericoli’s drawing is at once monumental and gentle . . . together the buildings seem almost to be swaying softly in a chorus line along the Hudson.”—The New Yorker

“Seen through [Pericoli’s] eyes, Manhattan takes on the quality of Maurice Sendak’s Where the Wild Things Are.”—Vogue

Editorial Reviews

The New Yorker
As in his previous book, “Manhattan Unfurled,” Pericoli starts with a long strip of paper, folded accordion style, and renders an idealized view of a New York skyline with colored pencils and a subtle palette of oil pastels. The previous panorama showed the skyline as it appears from the water; this time his imaginary vantage point is inside Central Park. Rising above a thick green smudge representing the trees, the buildings on the four sides of the park are drawn with architectural rigor and Steinbergian whimsy. “From the park all the buildings seem to look at me,” Pericoli writes. “When I was working on the skyline along the edge of the island, they were giving their backs to me as if they didn’t care.”
