Best-selling Photographer Joanne Dugan Authors ABC NYC: A Book About Seeing New York City Featuring

Acclaimed photographer Joanne Dugan, whose compelling images illustrated the best-selling Taxi Driver Wisdom, has collaborated with designer Pamela Hovland to create a unique ABC primer titled ABC NYC: A Book About Seeing New York City (Abrams; $14.95; May, 2005). Dugan conceived of the project after realizing there were no renditions of a city-inspired alphabet book to which her 2-year old son could relate. Through Dugan's experienced lens and Hovland's controlled but ever-changing presentation, readers of all ages will see a version of New York City that takes them far beyond the usual polished postcard images.
