Browns has designed Coney Island, the latest book in the Magnum Editions series, to showcase the work of New York street photographer Bruce Gilden. The images were taken on Coney Island, in the US, from 1969 to 1986. Browns partner Jonathan Ellery says, ‘We haven’t used any grids or typography in the design of this book.
