Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
In New York Vertical, first published in 1997, photographer Horst Hamann depicts the Big Apple in a way he felt it had never before been captured: "[N]o one," he wrote, "had yet looked at the city in a strictly vertical way." That edition, with its unusual size (it stood 19 inches high and 9 inches wide), striking images, and amusing tributes to the city (penned by everyone from Woody Allen to Thomas Zeumer) was an instant hit, despite a price tag of nearly $100. Now, an affordably priced, manageably sized edition (this one's 13-plus inches high and just over 6 inches wide) is available for those who missed out the first time around.
