Dapper Dan: Made in Harlem BookRegular price $28.00
New York Times Best Seller, Dapper Dan: Made in Harlem Book is a memoir of Daniel R. Day.
With his now-legendary store on Lenox Ave near 125th Street in Harlem, Dapper Dan pioneered high-end streetwear in the early 1980s, remixing classic luxury-brand logos into his own flamboyant designs. But before reinventing fashion, he was a hungry boy with holes in his shoes, a teen who daringly gambled drug dealers out of their money, a young man in a prison cell who found nourishment in books, and, finally, a designer who broke barriers to outfit a whos-who of music, sport, and crime-world celebrities in looks that went on to define an era.

Sights in the City: New York Street Photographs Book by Jamel Shabazz consists of 120 color and black-and-white photographs taken between 1985 and the 2000s, most of which have never been published.
During the summer of 1980, under the direction of his photographer father, Jamel Shabazz armed himself with a Canon AE1 SLR camera and began to photograph the landscape of his native New York City. Photographing in the streets put Shabazz right in the heart of all of the action; he carried his camera everywhere he went, from Harlem to Times Square, the Lower East Side to downtown Brooklyn, always set and at the ready. Like a fisherman seeking a fruitful catch, Shabazz ventured into locations full of life and uncertainty in hopes of capturing a unique moment. Sights in the City is the testament of Shabazz’s visual journey.
