This work features extraordinary images of the windy city, its people, stories and mysteries. This is a gorgeous book that is both personal diary and city chronicle. Chicago, its citizens and its folktales inform this unique collection of images. Fitzpatrick gives readers fantasy and fact, architectural landmarks and obscure neighbourhood bars, and his own heroes, real or imagined. Chicago is a city of sports legends and wild politics, but it is also a city of real, everyday people. His work is informed by his wide reading, an astounding imagination, a vast inventory of memorabilia and a great love of the Windy City.
Tony Fitzpatrick is an artist, actor and the author of Max and Gaby's Alphabet. His work has been exhibited at The Art Institute of Chicago, Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, and New York's Museum of Modern Art. He lives in Chicago.
