Recently published by Simon and Schuster, artist, illustrator and author Matteo Pericoli's latest book, The City Out My Window, is a collection of line drawings representing the private window views of 63 New Yorkers.
The City Out My Window shows us the personal views of the big apple as seen by Tom Wolfe, Tony Kushner, Nora Ephron, Stephen Colbert, Richard Meier, Oliver Sacks, Mario Batali, David Byrne, and other artists, writers, and thinkers who help make the city what it is. The book includes their comments on what they see out their window and is introduced by Pulitzer Prize-winning architecture critic Paul Goldberger.
Here's a peek at some of the private views in the book, as drawn in ink by Matteo:

The book captures New York as seen through the eyes of New Yorkers both famous and ordinary, whose particular window views reveal a hidden perspective of the city—and of themselves. And would make a great gift for any art or NY lover.
