The Grolier Club, New York: 2002. Limited Signed Edition. s . 
In 1915, The Grolier Club published New York with color wood engravings by Rudolph Ruzicka. That book evoked the city in a period of rapid, remarkable change.

Along with the city's enormous physical and social transformations, up to and including the events of September 11, 2001, Ken conveys the continuity of spirit and character of the "New York accent." Two-and-a half years in the making, New York Revisited is illustrated by the foremost contemporary artist in color wood engraving. The engravings include the Empire State building, Chrysler Building from Lexington Avenue, 230 Park Avenue, Grand Central subway station, White Horse Tavern, Times Square, the World Trade Center (vignette), and Strawberry fields. One of 250 signed and numbered copies, designed and printed by the artist at his press, Midnight Paper Sales.

He developed improved surveying tools, methods of mapping, and a collapsable lightweight boat for transporting men and materials over the lakes that dot the Adirondacks. His writings and illustrated maps show that despite the constant obstacles his survey faced he could still appreciate and be awed by the beauty that surrounded him. Peak to Peak explores Colvin and his work in a presentation of text, maps, drawings and prints. The text includes excerpts from an address by Kermit Remele, Licensed Surveyor, at the XXII Congress of the International Federation of Surveyors in Washington, DC.
