The New York Pigeon: Behind the Feathers

by Garn, Andrew ;Emily S. Rueb; Rita McMahon

Condition: Fine/Fine

Brooklyn NY: powerHouse Books, 2018. (USA) 1st printing. No markings, Fine as New in Fine dust jacket. Boards, 144pp, colour photos of New York's pigeons, some lovely close ups. The New York Pigeon is a photography book that reveals the unexpected beauty of the omnipresent pigeon as if Vogue magazine devoted its pages to birds, rather than fashion models. In spite of pigeons' ubiquity in New York and other cities, we never really see them closely and know very little about their function in the urban ecosystem. A heavy book. (2.9 JM 31/2. 1st. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. 4to - over 9¾" - 12".
