From The Hold Shelf (Or What I'm About To Read)...

"Humans of New York" by Brandon Stanton
Now an instant #1 New York Times bestseller, Humans of New York began in the summer of 2010, when photographer Brandon Stanton set out to create a photographic census of New York City.  Armed with his camera, he began crisscrossing the city, covering thousands of miles on foot, all in an attempt to capture New Yorkers and their stories.  The result of these efforts was a vibrant blog he called "Humans of New York," in which his photos were featured alongside quotes and anecdotes. 

The blog has steadily grown, now boasting millions of devoted followers.  Humans of New York is the book inspired by the blog.  With four hundred color photos, including exclusive portraits and all-new stories, Humans of New York is a stunning collection of images that showcases the outsized personalities of New York.

Surprising and moving, printed in a beautiful full-color, hardbound edition, Humans of New York is a celebration of individuality and a tribute to the spirit of the city.

"The Cheap Chica's Guide to Style" by Lilliana Vazquez from the last edition of "From The Hold Shelf (Or What I'm About To Read)" was a nice little read and it introduced me to the Cheap Chica's website, which for some reason I didn't know about but am glad I do now.

    1. I haven't gotten around to reading it yet but my Page did and he said it was amazing.
