Jan Henderikse | Broadway

Jan Henderikse
Rotterdam, The Netherlands: Bebert Edition, 1983
83 pp., 4 1/4 x 14″, accordion-fold
Edition of 200, 100 of which were signed

A ninety-eight foot long artist'’s book documenting Broadway Street in 249 images laid out horizontally, three to a page, which are presented end-to-end so that the book becomes an uninterrupted continuum tracing New York City’'s oldest north-south thoroughfare.

Bound together with two laces, the book features an image of every intersection on Broadway, beginning with the financial district, then moving uptown to Soho, Times Square, the Upper West Side, Harlem, Sugar Hill and Inwood to Spuyten Duyvil, which separates Manhattan from the Bronx.

The title is available for between $750 and $1750, depending on condition and whether the title is from the signed or unsigned edition.
