By Becky Cooper
Armed with 1000's 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, type versions, and senior electorate who had lived in big apple all their lives. She requested the strangers to “map their ny” and to mail the customised maps again to her. quickly, her P.O. field was once jam-packed with a cartography of intimate narratives: previous loves, misplaced houses, youth thoughts, comical moments, and miraculous confessions. A fantastically illustrated, PostSecret-style tribute to ny, Mapping Manhattan contains seventy five maps from either nameless mapmakers and impressive New Yorkers, together with Man on twine aerialist Philippe Petit, New York Times wine critic Eric Asimov, Tony award-winning actor Harvey Fierstein, and plenty of more.
