Happy Pub Day! A VERY NEW YORK CHRISTMAS

Not everyone is lucky enough to live in the Big Apple all year round, but those of us who do will tell you there’s no better time to visit than during the holiday season. Lights are lit, bells get janglin’, and colorful decorations go up on all corners of the city–from the South Street Seaport to Central Park to Rockefeller Center, New York becomes a feast for anyone’s eyes, tourists and residents alike.

Today we’re proud to publish the second edition of A Very New York Christmas by Michael Storrings, award-winning designer, illustrator, and art director extraordinaire! This gorgeous, giftable collection captures the magical landscape and excitement of the holiday season in dozens of watercolors, including famous traditions like Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, the lighting of the Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Angel Tree, plus less well-known imagery like the Christmas lights in Brooklyn’s Dyker Heights, the Boys Choir of Harlem, and the Holiday Train show at The New York Botanical Garden. These unique illustrations are sure to inspire you, either to visit NYC during the magic of Christmastime, or to paint your very own version of it!

Now, this brand-new edition includes four pages of full-color removable ornaments you can hang anywhere you like to get into the Christmas spirit. Since 2003, Storrings’s watercolors have been turned into bestselling ornaments that have a worldwide fan base and sell out in stores such as Saks, Bloomingdale’s, and Bergdorf Goodman.

Including a delightful foreword from actor Cynthia Nixon, this jewel-like book combines festive quotations from literature and popular culture with Storrings’s charming watercolors of forty cherished New York holiday scenes, making this a perfect gift and yuletide keepsake.
