Description

American Cities features nine of this country’s greatest metropolises, thriving urban centers with rich colorful histories: Boston; New York; Philadelphia; Washington, D.C.; New Orleans; St. Louis; Chicago; Denver; and San Francisco. Rare or previously unpublished historic maps and views of each of the cities provides a unique journey through each city—from the how they developed over time to historic events that helped to shape their formation. The maps and views offer a fascinating way to explore the creation, development, and true spirit of each city. Essays by specialists accompany each section and help to explain and explore the growth of these wonderful cities, while this lavish book pays tribute to the most important and artistic images of America.

Assouline’s Ultimate Collection is an homage to the art of luxury bookmaking. Hand-bound using traditional techniques, with color plates hand-tipped on art-quality paper, each page of this limited-edition series bears the unique imprint of the artisan. Treating a range of topics from jewelry and fashion, fine art and the ‘Impossible Collections,’ the Ultimate Collection curates culture from around the world and across the ages. Nestled in linen clamshell presentation cases, these books attract collectors, lovers of the printed page, and those who devour the culture of our time. Signaling a new level of sophistication for true connoisseurs, these unique books are works of art in their own right.
