I use this space to share links and stories on photography, art, politics, design, advertising, technology, music, and culture. Essentially this is my Internet, filtered with the content I think is most relevant and/or interesting. I write book reviews as I read them.
All photographs are credited and all opinions are my own. My posting of someone's work does not endorse or imply endorsement of that artist's message.
Cooper has been inviting people to draw and contribute their own maps of Manhattan on this collaborative Tumblr blog and has turned the best into a book. These are more than maps, they’re windows into people lives.
The last page of the book allows readers to draw their own map and mail it to Copper (last image above by Maria Popova).

I just got the Aperture edition of this book and it’s stunning. Real beauty comes out of the grit and filth that was the New York City subway system in 1980. If you’re looking to buy someone a photo book for the holidays definitely check this out.
