Item description for City by Numbers by Stephen T. Johnson...

Paintings of various sites around New York City--from a shadow on a building to a wrought-iron gate to the Brooklyn Bridge--depict the numbers from one to twenty-one. Reprint.

Publishers Description

In the ideal follow-up to his stunning Caldecott Honor book "Alphabet City," Stephen T. Johnson turns his talents towards numbers. Wordless spreads featuring impressively photo-realistic paintings of New York City invite readers both young and old to search for the numbers zero through twenty-one hidden in the images. From a sweeping 4 found in the span of an urban bridge to the 13 of a faded crosswalk, this is an intriguing new way to think about numbers and the world around you.

Reviews - What do customers think about City by Numbers?

Steven Johnson Takes Children's Books to a Whole New Level  Aug 4, 2005
This book should be a delight to both children and adults. The artwork is sohpisticated, beautifully rendered and subtle. The numbers are hidden in the reality of each scene. He could have manipulated these images so that the numbers would be more obvious but he lets the viewer see them in their own time. Excellent book for teaching children about numbers, art and the poetry of combining the two.
the most creatively educational children's book on the marke  Dec 25, 1998
Stephen Johnson is by far the most creative artist/illustrator of educational children's books alive. He not only makes learning fun in Alphabet City and City by Numbers, but shows his remarkable talent as an artist. His illustrations, for lack of a better word, are flawless as can be seen clearly in the originals. He does not bring the book down to a child's level, but teaches them to appreciate art and learning at his level. He is completely remarkable and shows that it is rewarding to major in fine arts in college even if you wish to be an illustrator. No illustrator could produce the quality work that he has produced. Definitely buy this book. You will not be disappointed.
