Newtown Creek

The photographer Anthony Hamboussi and Furnace Press co-founder/editor Paul Parkhill, who collaborated on our book LIC in Context, recently reconnected in print. In May 2010, Princeton Architectural Press released “Newtown Creek” by Anthony Hamboussi, with an afterword by Paul Parkhill. This very attractive new book should also be interesting to readers of our publication Copper on the Creek. And we like this recent review:

“While Hamboussi’s photography is powerful, provocative stuff, it is Paul Parkhill’s afterword – insightful thoughts on industrial New York and urban planning – that puts it all in context.”

Design in Progress

We’re finalizing the back cover design for the Decomposition series… and by “we”, we mean Bryan Papciak, who is putting it all together. He shot the original photo in the decaying library of an abandoned hospital in New Orleans. Soon to be seen on the backs of our fancy new books!
