Whimsical and intellectually challenging

 on March 10, 2011
By Jeff March
If you're looking for a book that's whimsical while intellectually stimulating, take a look at David M. Eastis' latest work, "7." The book contains more than 200 pages of color photographs and illustrations, all of which bear some connection to the number 7. Most of the images are of familiar people, places and objects, and many of them are charmingly nostalgic. For a few, the relationship to the number 7 is apparent. For example, as a native New Yorker, I immediately understood the significance of the photo of the "Fashion Avenue" street sign; that's the nickname of the portion of Seventh Avenue that runs through Manhattan's "garment district." But the majority of images are brain-teasers requiring the reader to call upon knowledge of literature, history, geography, sports and other topics. For example, the map of the Middle East on page 169 and the image of the Monopoly "chance" square on page 185 baffled me. You can read more about it at […].
