Bonjour New York
In Bonjour New York the French filmmaker and globetrotter Marin Montagut depicts his world, a world that exists in no other guide, a world of his own. Bonjour New York is a city guide, folging map and piece of art at once - each of his well curated addresses is beautifully illustrated. Marin strays from a very well beaten track and unveils places little known by tourists and locals alike. Slip Bonjour New York in your pocket to explore the city from Manhatten to Brooklyn, and discover unexpected yet refined places which take pride in skilled craftsmanship.
Measurments of the unfolded map: 5.5 x 4.2 inches. The field guide is made of tear-proof paper on which each address is numbered and illustrated by a hand-painted watercolor. Downtown Manhattan is broken down in three neighborhoods: East Village, Soho, and West Village, whereas Brooklyn is divided in two areas: Greenpoint and Boerum Hill. Every desire at one's fingertips... Point to an illustration if you wish to sip a cocktail in New York's best speakeasy, roam the Big Apple in a pair of exquisite shoes tailor-made by one of the city's oldest shoemakers, or design your very own pair of jeans by hand picking your favorite canvas before heading to a secret garden in the East Village for a well-deserved rest.
