Art Deco New York

This is a magnificent publication with a nearly pyrotechnic cover. 64 pages of newsprint, over 160 photographs that make New York look more like Metropolis than Metropolis itself, and brilliantly 1940s in design.
My particular favourite among some pretty cool photography all round is the image looking down into theatre land at night where the glow of light from street level gives the impression one is looking down through the cracks into an infernal urban realm - which, I suppose one might consider not far from the truth at times.
