Alphabet City

by Stephen T. Johnson, and published by Viking



"Johnson's photorealistic paintings of urban environment present an imaginative variety of views and perspectives, textures, and light. Each painting stands alone as as a handsome, balanced piece. Together they are an inspiring exercise in seeing patterns and art in everyday things. Johnson inspires the viewer to examine the environment with new eyes."
