Product Description:
Sitting at the crossroads to the west, Kansas City is a sparkling jewel on the prairie with world-class museums, beautiful and inspiring arts, restaurants with inventive and delectable foods, an abundance of parks and wide-open green spaces, and spectacular fountains. The country was explored from here, beginning at the banks of the Missouri River, which bisects the city. Many stopped in Kansas City to purchase goods and load wagons before heading west on trails that led to gold, land, and the ocean. But many also stayed, building a friendly and hospitable town that is as rich in culture as it is in history. These photos present just a hint of what Kansas City has to offer.

Product Description:
While some cities owe their existence to lumber or oil, turpentine or steel, Kansas City owes its existence to food. From its earliest days, Kansas City was in the business of provisioning pioneers and traders headed west, and later with provisioning the nation with meat and wheat. Throughout its history, thousands of Kansas Citians have also made their living providing meals and hospitality to travelers passing through on their way elsewhere, be it by way of a steamboat, Conestoga wagon, train, automobile, or airplane. As Kansas City’s adopted son, Fred Harvey sagely noted, “Travel follows good food routes,” and Kansas City’s identity as a food city is largely based on that fact. Kansas City: A Food Biography explores in fascinating detail how a frontier town on the edge of wilderness grew into a major metropolis, one famous for not only great cuisine but for a crossroads hospitality that continues to define it. Kansas City: A Food Biography also explores how politics, race, culture, gender, immigration, and art have forged the city’s most iconic dishes, from chili and steak to fried chicken and barbecue. In lively detail, Andrea Broomfield brings the Kansas City food scene to life.

Product Description:
At no other time in history has there been a more exciting collision of art, music, and fashion than at Max’s Kansas City from the 1960s to the early 80s. Max’s was the place where you could stare at Andy Warhol, argue about art with Willem de Kooning or John Chamberlain, discuss literature with William S. Burroughs, and get a record deal just by showing up. If downstairs the artists were paying their tabs with original art, upstairs was home to the iconoclastic New York music scene, with performances by Max’s house band, the Velvet Underground; the irreverent New York Dolls; and undiscovered musicians such as Bruce Springsteen, Bob Marley, Blondie, Iggy Pop, and Madonna.


 


A luminous collection of photographs that captures the exuberance and decadence of the coolest club of all time, as well as essays by Lou Reed, Lenny Kaye, Danny Fields, and Steven Watson, Max’s Kansas City is a stun­ning souvenir of one of New York City’s most important cultural landmarks.

Praise for Max's Kansas City:

"a raucous photo book with reminiscences of the club" --The New York Times 

"a brilliant photographic tribute to New York City's hippest hangout, long regarded the crossroads of music and fashion" --Harper's Bazaar
