Magnum has launched a new Edition of the giant book “New York” published by Gloria. This book is an ideal (yet expensive) gift for the passionate New Yorker, featuring the most iconic images of New York by some of the most respected photographers of our times – including 28 Magnum photographers, such as Diane Arbus, Bruce Davidson, Annie Leibovitz and Helmut Newton among others.
There are only 25 editions of them available worldwide at a not-so-light price tag of $4000. However, this book is massive: over 20 x 14 inches, 1500 images, 756 pages, over 200,000 words, over 12 kg in weight, featuring 33 chapters covering every aspect of the New York story, including history, architecture, design, art, fashion, music, film, television, dance, sport and 9/11.
The Magnum edition includes a 11×14” gelatin silver print by Leonard Freed, estate stamped – which means that each print is authenticated by the Estate as being made from the original negative and approved in quality to be to the photographer’s standards.
