LE BOOK, the international reference for the creative industry, announces the release of its 2012 New York edition curated by noted film director, writer and actor Spike Lee. Donning images from his 1989 Academy Award nominated film DO THE RIGHT THING, the 2012 New York edition is a welcome departure for LE BOOK as Lee boldly brands their latest edition with the words “WAKE UP.”

Set in Brooklyn, NY, Spike Lee’s third film is often cited as one of the greatest of all time. Deemed “culturally significant” and preserved in the National Film Registry, Do the Right Thing will continue to influence generations of image makers for many years to come.

Always a collector’s item, LE BOOK New York 2012 is honored to have Spike Lee join the long lineage of cultural influencers – including Azzedine Alaïa, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Karl Lagerfeld, Stephen Sprouse, Yohji Yamamoto, Yves Saint Laurent – who have graced the cover of LE BOOK and celebrate the artistic and cultural relevance he has had on New York and the creative community.

For over 25 years, LE BOOK has defined itself as the go-to resource for global creative professionals. With its New York, Paris, London, Berlin and West Coast editions, LE BOOK sources all needs related to image creation and branding while showcasing the world’s most inspirational talent.

The global LE BOOK brand extends beyond the printed editions to include an online creative search engine, the online magazine LA CREATIVE, and the international networking event, CONNECTIONS, the customized tradeshow for the professional creative industry.
