NYPL Launches Series of Free iBooks

From a NYPL Announcement:

NYPL has just released the first issue of Point, a monthly series of free iBooks, focusing on specific and timely collections from the Library’s Digital Gallery. The inaugural issue, Kenn Duncan’s Male Photography, features the photographer’s stunning portraits of male actors of the late 1960s – 1980s, such as Christopher Walken, William Hurt, and Sal Mineo, and is a perfect complement to the Library’s 2008 collaboration on Divas!, which highlighted Duncan’s images of actresses such as Bette Midler, Angela Landsbury, and others.
