By Becky Cooper
Armed with enormous quantities of clean maps she had painstakingly revealed by way of hand, Becky Cooper walked big apple from finish to finish. alongside her trip she met law enforcement officials, homeless humans, model types, and senior electorate who had lived in big apple all their lives. She requested the strangers to “map their big apple” and to mail the customised maps again to her. quickly, her P.O. field used to be packed with a cartography of intimate narratives: prior loves, misplaced houses, formative years thoughts, comical moments, and impressive confessions. A superbly illustrated, PostSecret-style tribute to manhattan, Mapping Manhattan contains seventy five maps from either nameless mapmakers and amazing New Yorkers, together with Man on twine aerialist Philippe Petit, New York Times wine critic Eric Asimov, Tony award-winning actor Harvey Fierstein, and lots of more.
