Incredible photo of giant type taken from New York hotel

Dublin art director Kirk Bannon recently showed me this spectacular shot taken from his window whilst staying in New York’s Palace Hotel. If you’re a fan of type, you’ll recognize the iconic signage from the New York Magazine sign, which was replaced by Burberry in 2009. What are the odds of capturing this moment? Type strapped down, just before the truck drives away. I don’t think anyone else in the world has this photograph in their personal collection.
