Up & Down New York by Tony Sarg

Up & Down New York by Tony Sarg

The creations and ideas of Tony Sarg, a man I’m sure few people are familiar with, touches upon the lives of Americans ever year, between Thanksgiving and Christmas. He’s the man credited with creating the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade floats, as well as designing the elaborate window displays featured during the holiday time.
He was also a fantastic illustrator, as shown in his recently re released book, Up & Down New York. The book, first published in 1926, depicts scenes of bustling New York from high above the streets, filled with amazing details of everyday life.

You can buy his book now from Amazon for $30.
