Coney Island was the basis for this very rare tactile paper book, which formed part of a series of similar booklets by Gilbert Paper. The premise behind the booklet is to ask: "Why does Coney still exist and why do we still find it so interesting?". The booklet investigates what remains of the 'old' Coney Island, its amusement parks and rides. What we discover is that Coney is a surreal place but ironically one of the last real places left in New York. The last line of the text reads: “…gritty, tough and real, no Disneyland.”

Fascinating and beautifully designed.

Condition: Fine.
