Designer Rafael Esquer of Alfalfa New York has created a gorgeous, limited poster entitled Iconic New York Illuminated, which recreates a very specific feeling of being in the midst of Manhattan at night. Inspired by the distinctive style of Gustav Klimt, the poster is made of sparkling foils and metallic inks that reflect beautifully on a lush black background. Both signed and unsigned versions are available for purchase.
Iconic New York Illuminated© is composed of more than 600 icons. Compared to the original 2013 Iconic New York© poster, this night edition has nearly 200 additional icons, including 28 buildings, 23 celebrities, 20 media outlets, 12 cultural institutions, 11 urban legends, 10 writers, 8 sports teams, 3 superheroes, and 1 saint. New quirky details were added, too. Look for pizza-rat in the East Village, the Miracle on the Hudson, a diamond-garnished martini for only $10,000, and a few legally topless women wandering about. And around every corner, watch out for pedestrians, prams, poodles, and pretzels!
