One part concierge, one part tastemaker, CITY magazine is your destination for style. Serving up the staple diet of the savvy urbanite—fashion, food, design, and travel—CITY is an insider’s guide to cosmopolitan life. In culturally charged communities where the choices are infinite, CITY tailors a custom-fit lifestyle.
This book is a collection of just some of our favorite stories throughout the years. You’ll find fashion shoots, still-life studies, vibrant beauty close-ups, even some sultry balloon-character models sporting the hottest trends. Look closer, though, and you’ll discover nearly a decade’s worth of passion and creativity from CITY’s countless friends and staffers— a body of work that neither John McDonald nor Fabrice Frere could ever have anticipated when they dreamed up this magazine in an office above a bar.
