They are designed to look like someone found them at the bottom of a stack of books, in a dusty old antique shop. Rather than being glossy and shiny, the publishers chose to do something a lot more interesting and creative. We hope you appreciate the special effort we made to create a special book about this special building. Enjoy!Readers will also enjoy "A Grand Tour of the Dakota Apartments: A Journey Through Time of the Interior & Exterior of New York's Legendary Landmark."
