New York By Gehry

New York: Eight Spruce Sreet, N.d. Item #014613

Promotional drivel for Eight Spruce Street, now renamed "New York by Gehry". Remarkable for its total lack of information about the building, consisting entirely of stock photographs of things you will never see if you live in the building: interior of subway car, civic art, old people with walking devices, words chiseled in stone, water tanks, fire escapes, billboards, building facades, etc., peppered with fat blocks of text assuring you that "there is no yesterday"; "limitless"; "ambition"; "aspire"; "whatever you want, whenever you want it" (a paticular favorite of mine); "always the most"; ad nauseum. First edition. 8vo; unpaged [approximately 100]; illustrated. A fine copy in wrappers.

Price: $30.00
