We love books for their ability to take us to places and times we’ve never been. Photography collections are particularly effective in this way, and the images collected in Taschen’sPortrait of a Cityseries are exquisite. Each volume features hundreds of photographs capturing the energy of an urban center, with essays and commentary providing context for each image. From the moonlit streets of Paris to snapshots of the everyday lives of New Yorkers in the 1960s, these substantial volumes will provide hours of entertainment as you take a photographic journey through these cities.
Our custom jackets come in three color palettes that add a touch of elegance to any room. On the spines of the jackets are icons from each city: The RCA Building, the Eiffel Tower, the Empire State Building, and Big Ben subtly represent their city.
