An ABC book that pays tribute to a child's view of New York City
An ABC book unlike any other, "ABC NYC" reinvents the genre using an alphabet unique to New York City. From subway signs to building graffiti, NYC's letters are represented everywhere you walk: M is for Manhole cover, T is for Taxi. A child's guidebook to life in New York, "ABC NYC" beautifully captures the visual vocabulary of the city kid with bold black-and-white photographs and vibrant letters found in some of the most surprising places. Perfect for the youngest set learning the alphabet or collectors of New York memorabilia, "ABC NYC" is as striking and energetic as the city it reveals.
