German publishing house MarcoPolo has decided to create new type of travel book, which is more like a coffee table book than anything tourist will carry in the backpack or in packet.
They collaborated with artist James Rizzi who once was already featured with his work on metrocard issued by MTA in 1994.
The book itself is wonderful piece of work.
The first edition has circulation of 3,000.
It contains real MTA metrocard which can be taken off the book and loaded with money to use in transit in NYC. Book has 2 coupon to buy some Rizzi’s related stuff on amazon.de, 2 CDs, baggage tags with Rizzi’s drawings, post cards and card with his autograph. I highly suggest to all collectors to buy the book rather than go to Ebay and buy cards ripped off.
