Brooklyn is booming; it is also home to some of the world's most radical design talent. Brooklyn: New Style provides an insider's look at these cutting-edge designers working in graphics, fashion, furniture, architecture, and other fields. They came to the area in search of space, artistic freedom, places to exhibit their work, and fellow artists with whom to collaborate. Priced out of Manhattan by high rents and exorbitant living costs, these young innovators settled in unexpected out-of-the-way neighbourhoods. In the process they have moved Brooklyn to creative centre stage. This is the second in a series by Booth-Clibborn Editions on cities or regions where young designers live and work, the first being Berliner Style. Filled with more than 350 full-colour illustrations of off-the-wall projects by Graphic Havoc, Freecell, Hunter Gatherer, Barnstormers, Luxx and 30 other creative teams, this book captures the energy and talent of Brooklyn's scene-makers. Informative captions add another dimension, exploring the social and economic context for this creative explosion. Designed by Martin Perrin.
