Christmas in New York, whimsically illustrated

Tis the season in the Big Apple

Roxie Munro has written and illustrated more than 35 children's books. With a delicate hand, she draws incredibly detailed, magnetic scenes of cityscapes, deserts, and amusement parks filled with people, animals, and more.

Christmastime in New York City (Rizzoli), back in print for the first time in more than two decades, invites readers of all ages to delight in the Big Apple's iconic buildings and vistas — all dressed up for the holidays. From skaters sweeping across Rockefeller Center's ice rink to people pressing their faces against department store windows, Munro's illustrations express the color and excitement that can surprise even the city that never sleeps. The whimsical, retro style may appear familiar to readers of The New Yorker; Munro's paintings have appeared as the covers on 14 issues of the magazine.

Below, take a tour through an iconic city filled with the magic of the season.
