Giveaway: The City Out My Window
The folks over at Simon & Schuster have been kind enough to give us two copies of Matteo Pericoli's beautiful book The City Out My Window to give away. A great gift for any New Yorker - current dweller or not. I can think of at least five people off the top of my head that would love this book. Pericoli illustrates views from the windows of 63 New York artists, writers & thinkers (like Mario Batali, Annie Leibovitz, Mikhail Beryshnikov, David Byrne & more) with a description from each of the views' "owners" - showing us that your window is the frame through which you see your own picture of the world, a picture that is yours and no one else's.*
Simply leave a comment by midnight this Sunday, December 13. I'll choose the two lucky winners at random & announce them on Monday morning. Don't forget to leave your email address so I can contact you if you win.

Matteo Pericoli has generously offered to dedicate these books for the two winners!
So if you win, tell me to whom you'd like the book made out to and I will pass it along to Matteo, who is going to mail notes to me from Italy, which I'll tuck inside each book before mailing them out. How incredibly nice is that? Don't miss out on this one!
