Amazing Doors of New York City
By Allan Markman
Published by Schiffer Publishing, September 28th, 2013
Never in my wildest dreams did I expect to see a whole book devoted to photographs of doors in a city, but I am thrilled beyond measure that Allan Markman has followed his dream and published this book.
Traversing New York City, he has photographed doors from all sorts of environments - churches, hotels, upmarket buildings and down-at-heel buildings, garage doors, shop doors, fire station doors, doors where someone has wanted to make a social, political or religious statement, doors which have been allowed to become neglected and run down, doors which someone has wanted to beautify, doors which have been vandalised and graffiti-ed. Pagodas, sunsets, flowers, animals, patterns, faces, abstracts, messages and colours galore - they are all in this book and even better, at the back is a thumbnail index to tell you where they are located!
One of the most fun books I have read this year.
