Top-notch compilation celebrating 200 years of New York City news as seen in the pages of the New York Post, with half-tones and line art throughout. These punchy pages have just the right-length feature stories, especially "Kiss Your Asteroid Goodbye!" and "Amy's Nude Romps in Jail," "The Jimmy Walker Scandals," and "President and Smith Open Empire State, Mightiest Building." The Post was born in 1801 as a four-page sheet published by Federalist Alexander Hamilton, a victim of the gentlemanly and brutal art of dueling; it remains the oldest continuously published paper in the US. While Walt Whitman offers Civil War coverage, much is condensed into racy modern prose—which will be welcome news to anyone who's ever read 19th-century journalism. Read full book review >
