Book by Swiss painter, illustrator and art director of graphic novels Philippe Lardy.
Philippe Lardy 'New York Chronicles'
New York Chronicles is a visual testimony of a city in transformation. In the 1980s, art was everywhere. On subways, on magazine covers, on the giant billboards of Times Square. From Philippe Lardy's point of view as an illustrator, he tells the story of this golden age: the abandonedNew York, in cultural effervescence. It's the story of a key moment when his drawings were first published in the New York Times, then in the whole American press and when he edited a magazine in the footsteps of Art Spiegelman's RAW.
