Matteo Pericoli began drawing the Manhattan skyline in 1998 and ended up with two continuous 37-foot scrolls--one for the East Side and one for the West. They were embraced in October 2001 by a city, nation, and world still reeling from 9/11.

This is such a delightful book - the skyline of the Island of Manhattan in a wonderfully LONG fold out - east and west.
