All about people

Monday, November 9, 2009
  • The first reason I chose the book New York nomadic design, was its title. Recently I visited New York and I thought that the book could complement the information about US design and art that I had gained from the recent trip. The book is the size of an average magazine, and is not too thick either. The cover has a metallic grey cover with a map of New York printed all over the cover. In addition there are four small images that are very different from each other. After a couple of introductory pages, I found that every single page contains three or four pictures with very little text. Those pages as well as on the cover show extremely different things, from a tent made on the street by homeless people to glossy slick furniture. I can appreciate the approach taken by the writer which is giving a real feel for the city.

    Now I have read your post I really want to rent this book. The book has a great title. It is a bit a paradox theme because the word nomadic is not what I expect by thinking of the city New York. I think the book can be an eye opener because it shows a lot aspect of the society. And it is nice that there is the connection between design and the peoples daily live in New York.

    You say that the writer is giving a real feel for the city. Do you mean the real feel for the city’s design or or the way people live on the street’s.
