New York City is a mix of energy, diversity and endless possibilities. Today, more than eight million people find a home in the city's colourful hustle and bustle. New York's cultural, ethnic and economic diversity is incomparable.

The contrasts in the daily hustle and bustle and the lively soundscape breathe a life of their own into New York. Between dizzying skyscrapers, artistic diversity, hip shopping streets and green parks, new perspectives are always opening up - and you can't decide which one to grab first.

Places, people and ventures in a never-ending abundance - New York is not an absolute place of longing for nothing. The city offers the chance to reinvent oneself and has so many faces and facets that anyone can feel at home in it.

Home to millions of truths

No one ever really gets to know New York in its entirety. Everyone who has been to New York has a different opinion of the city. And everyone is right. Because New York is home to millions of truths.

In their contrasts, the five boroughs form a legendary city that is addictive. From the flagship Manhattan to the multicultural Bronx north of the Harlem River, along the West River to independent Brooklyn, west to contrasting Queens or east to Staten Island - here a melting pot of all cultures and classes emerges. Each district has its own history and its own special features, and offers a wide variety of people a place to dream.

City that never sleeps

Ideas are born and lived in New York. Places, people and ventures in a never-ending abundance - New York is not an absolute place of longing for nothing. The city offers the chance to reinvent oneself and has so many faces and facets that anyone can feel at home in it.

Our love for the metropolis is reflected in the large number of New York coffee table books we have published. Our current coffee table books are each a declaration of love in their own right. Browse through our selection and experience the city in different scenes and points of view. Whether as a gift or simply for yourself, these coffee table books are so wonderful that you will hardly want to put them down:

Iconic New York

The revised edition is the new edition of the classic "Iconic New York". Christopher Bliss, a true New Yorker, photographs his city in his incomparably authentic and soulful way. The probably most famous city on the U.S. East Coast has so much more to offer than the Empire State Building, Time Square or the Statue of Liberty. Bliss shows the hidden places and buildings in Manhattan, Brooklyn or Queens that reflect the city's culture, everyday life and attitude to life.

In his inspiring illustrated book "Iconic New York", he takes his readers by the hand and tells them in moving pictures how he himself experiences and loves the Big Apple, shows the unique, cramped architecture and gives deep insights into the city life of the locals. 

New York Street Diaries

[tn-gallery-3247]

"New York Street Diaries" shows the big city on the east coast of the USA from a side that is rarely seen, namely quiet and tranquil. Photographer Phil Penman's pictures were taken partly during the great snowstorm and partly during the Corona Lockdown and are witnesses of a time that brought a city to a standstill. 

Penman knows how to capture the city in its most sensitive moments in an impressive way. His black-and-white photographs look into the heart of intimate moments and show the people and streets of New York City far away from the hustle and bustle. Penman succeeds in leading us into the scene through refreshing directness. An illustrated book that portrays New York's sensitive side. 

Streets of New York

The illustrated book "Streets of New York" reveals the immense diversity of the Big Apple by showing the city from different perspectives. More than 40 international photographers present an honest portrait of their favourite city, New York. New York has more than 60 million visitors every year. Each individual experiences his or her stay in the famous metropolis in a very unique way. And so it follows: There is no such thing as one New York.

This book of photographs presents a specific view of the metropolis that so many love. In "Streets of New York", photographs of world-famous landmarks such as the World Trade Center Transportation Hub, the Empire State Building and the Brooklyn Bridge alternate with photographs of hidden treasures - lesser-known but equally interesting areas of the city, captured by photographers with a modern eye for urban detail. A modern declaration of love to the city that never sleeps.

New York

In "New York", the mega-city presents itself in all its beauty. Serge Ramelli, French photographer and YouTube star, depicts the changeable character of New York in striking colours: obtrusively colourful neon signs, pulsating hustle and bustle on the avenues next to atmospheric sunrises over the awakening city or empty streets without a trace of human life.

In the coffee table book "New York", people play a rather subordinate role. Ramelli concentrates in his work on the mood, the light, the surroundings. Typical elements and sights are always depicted as no city visitor has ever seen them. Because that is what Ramelli masters: elevating everyday scenes to cinematic ones.

The yellow cabs and traffic lights appear as if they were highlighted, natural and artificial light compete with each other. Times Square, Broadway, the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty, everyone has a different association with the many icons that this city calls its own. It is guaranteed to be discovered somewhere in these photographs.

New York Unseen

[tn-gallery-3248]

"New York Unseen" gives an unprecedented look at what is probably the most photographed city in the world. Like the first part of the "Unseen" series (London Unseen), "New York Unseen" is an authentic approach to the character of a world metropolis.

Luc Kordas focuses on the intimate encounter with the protagonists of the world metropolis. The illustrated book looks behind the curtain of the city and shows the "natural habitat" of its people. The mostly black-and-white pictures of people from the streets, backyards, flats or trains reveal a previously hidden side of New York. The result is a photographic smorgasbord of looks, gestures and situations that capture the soul of New York. The city is thus seen from its edges, and at the same time from its innermost.
