If New York City is a state of mind, then Jorge Colombo captures the metropolis' thoughts like no other. Colombo's beautiful illustrations of New York City have graced the cover of The New Yorker several times, brilliantly depicting icons such as silhouetted rooftop water towers, the illuminated Chrysler Building at night, Fifth Avenue in the snow, or the ubiquitous hot dog stand. All of the images were finger painted on location on an iPhone; to passerby walking by the artist, he simply appeared to be sending text messages or reading a very long email. This sophisticated volume presents one hundred of his best pieces in full colour, accompanied by his recollections and comentaries about each location. Every scene is unmistakably New York: familiar, grand, timeless, yet filtered by modern, cutting-edge technology. Immediately recognizable to native New Yorkers, but also perfect for anyone who admires the Big Apple, this is a monograph of an artist and of a city.

Though it seems like all advancements in computing have occurred in the last few decades, in reality the technology behind computers dates back to early civilizations, such as our modern conception of numbers. Inventions in Computing: From the Abacus to Apple Computers discusses the history of the abacus, the Jacquard loom, computer animation programs, and the Apple computer in the order they were developed. The book shows how each subsequent invention was predicated on the invention before, how these innovations shaped the creative process, and how computers have come to play an integral role in our daily lives.

Genre: Animals

Tiré du site Internet de Printed Matter: "A Field Guide and Handbook to the High Line is a pocket-sized artists' project offering an alternative survey to some curious aspects of New York's elevated High Line park. Presenting an account – both anecdotal and scientifically minded – of the fauna and insect-life that thrives there, the book serves as a colorful introduction to the vast and varied ecology of the High Line. Full of peculiar observations, rumors, speculations, and mostly-true facts, Field Guide captures the manifold experience of moving along the elevated greenway through a towering cityscape. Editor Ethan Hauser and art historian Kenneth Helphand have offered essay contributions that consider the historical significance of the structure and place it within a broader trajectory of urban design through precedents of "an elevated plain". The project is designed by New Yorker-illustrator Jorge Colombo and includes several of his own digital artworks that are finger painted on an iPhone. Illustrations of High Line wildlife are by Bryan Wilson. This re-edition of Field Guide includes a new cover colorway, updates the High Line's 87-year timeline (bringing us to present), as well as an expanded map from Naomi & Emmy Reis to include the newest section of the High Line extending north of West 30th street. This is the updated 2nd edition, co-published with Friends of the High Line, the nonprofit organization that maintains and operates New York's High Line park."
