I’m obsessed with New York and try to visit every year, so while I wait for my next trip, I’m loving the new book, All The Buildings In New York.

It’s by illustrator, James Gulliver Hancock (great name), an Australian guy based in Brooklyn. He was so enthusiastic for the architectural beauty in his adopted home, he set himself the impossible task of drawing ALL the buildings in the city, which you can browse through on his blog. Until my copy arrives, I’ve picked out a few of my faves:
