Nonstop Metropolis

Nonstop Metropolis

"Nonstop Metropolis, the culminating volume in a trilogy of atlases, conveys innumerable unbound experiences of New York City through twenty-six imaginative maps and informative essays. Bringing together the insights of dozens of experts-from linguists to music historians, ethnographers, urbanists, and environmental journalists-amplified by cartographers, artists, and photographers, it explores all five boroughs of New York City and parts of nearby New Jersey. We are invited to travel through Manhattan's playgrounds, from polyglot Queens to many-faceted Brooklyn, and from the resilien Bronx to the mystical kung fu hip-hop mecca of Staten Island. The contributors to this exquisitely designed and gorgeously illustrated volume celebrate New York City's unique vitality, its incubation of the avant-garde, and its literary history, but they also critique its racial and economic inequality, environmental impact, and erasure of its past. Nonstop Metropolis allows us to excavate New York's buried layers, to scrutinize its political heft, and to discover the unexpected in one of the most iconic cities in the world. It is both a challenge and homage to how New Yorkers think of their city, and how the world sees this capital of capitalism, culture, immigration, and more." -- Publisher's description.

The City Of Infinite Life

The City Of Infinite Life

Everything Harper Lewis knows-from her software engineering job to her overly involved parents-is ripped from her when she suddenly awakens in a barren room, in a strange body, with a handsome man calling her someone else's name. The man divulges three things: it's 2123, the life she knew was a simulation, and she's in danger. She doesn't believe him, but she soon finds herself in a city that is nothing like the world she knew. It has pristine glassy streets and skyscrapers that pierce the clouds. People move like automatons, dress identically, and can heal instantaneously. And she's called an ambassador-of what she has no clue-but she's definitely someone important. Harper believes she is trapped in an alternate reality, but how did she get here? Who can she trust? Can she ever get home? And, if not, where does she really belong... THE CITY OF INFINITE LIFE is a fast-paced sci-fi adventure about surviving the unknown and discovering what it means to truly exist.

Invisible Cities

Invisible Cities

Italo Calvino's beloved, intricately crafted novel about an Emperor's travels—a brilliant journey across far-off places and distant memory. “Cities, like dreams, are made of desires and fears, even if the thread of their discourse is secret, their rules are absurd, their perspectives deceitful, and everything conceals something else.” In a garden sit the aged Kublai Khan and the young Marco Polo—Mongol emperor and Venetian traveler. Kublai Khan has sensed the end of his empire coming soon. Marco Polo diverts his host with stories of the cities he has seen in his travels around the empire: cities and memory, cities and desire, cities and designs, cities and the dead, cities and the sky, trading cities, hidden cities. As Marco Polo unspools his tales, the emperor detects these fantastic places are more than they appear.
