Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Over 12 million people each year are wowed by Matteo Pericoli's spectacular skyline mural in New York's JFK International Airport. Now Pericoli has rendered that same mural in the unique accordion format of his previous best-selling book, Manhattan Unfurled. The original 397-foot drawing (the largest ever featured in an airline terminal) captures the breathtaking beauty of 415 famous buildings from 70 countries, melded into a seamless skyline where the Eiffel Tower rubs shoulders with the Brooklyn Bridge. Pericoli's art speaks to the traveler in us all and serves as a visual reminder that the world is smaller than we think. With this mural reproduced in its entirety on a 10-foot foldout scroll of paper, readers will hold the world in their hands.
