Book Review: Visionary Cities

Title: Visionary Cities: The Arcology of Paolo Soleri
Author: Paolo Soleri
Publisher: Praeger Publishers, New York, 1971
Paolo Soleri's radical aethetic and philosophy for urban man are presented in this great matte black book. It's typography meets town planning. Swivel your head sideways and try to read it if you can. For me it's a visual treat which can be enjoyed just by flipping through it and enjoying huge type and beautiful imagery. Enjoy the slice of utube above.
