The Japanese edition of City arrived in the post today and it looks great! It's published by Kawade Shobo Shinsha in Tokyo, one of my favourite cities, and is available from Amazon Japan and all good bookstores. Enjoy!
Today, for the first time in history more than half the population of the planet live in cities. Two hundred years ago, just three per cent were city dwellers, but by 2050, 75 per cent will be urbanites. City is the ultimate guidebook for our urban age, taking the reader on a journey through the past, present and future of the world's cities. Illustrated throughout and with essays on everything from Ellis Island and Eco-cities, to Street Food and Tahrir Square, this is a fascinating celebration of our greatest creation – the city. More
