Many people have expressed to me their interest in obtaining copies of this book. I'm happy to announce here its official publication, with information about pre-publication orders.
ANNOUNCING FALL 2014 PUBLICATION of
WATERFRONT NEW YORK, IMAGES OF THE
1920S & ‘30S
WRITTEN & ILLUSTRATED BY
ALDREN A. WATSON
PUBLISHED BY THE QUANTUCK LANE PRESS,
DISTRIBUTED BY W.W. NORTON & COMPANY
Forty-five watercolor paintings and five maps present an
intimate view of the thriving port city of New York
in the early 1900s.
Detailed scenes of everyday life on and around the
waterfront are rendered through the
eyes of artist Aldren A. Watson, born and raised in Brooklyn.
Paintings are accompanied by informative text
and recollections drawn from
the artist’s notebooks.
Includes comprehensive index.
There will be 500 copies of Waterfront New York available
at a discount if ordered in advance of the Fall 2014
publication date. To purchase books at the special
discounts listed, orders must be prepaid and received
before September 15th. Books will be shipped as soon
as they are received from the printer. Once published,
the book will be available in bookstores for $35.00 each.
Aldren died in May 2013 without the pleasure of
seeing this book in print. He had looked forward
to signing copies, so in the spirit of that wish,
a special bookmark that includes a reproduction
of his signature will accompany each book
purchased with this offer.
Prepaid single copies discounted to $30.00 each.
Additional copies discounted to $25.00 each.
Prices include media rate shipping
for orders within the continental US.
