The special preview night of the Characters book took on a distinctly neon glow, thanks to the monumental Astoria Taxis sign. Recently restored by Kevin M Gange from Silver Top Taxis, this amazing typographic structure made the perfect backdrop for an event staged to celebrate the contributors and friends of the three year book project. And after the night, it was very easy to find a taxi for the ride home. Thanks to all those who made their own special contribution to the book. Event photography by Andrew Lloyd.
