This is a book about cities – how unexpectedly different they were in various countries and times. It is also a book about cities that never existed, but someone dreamed of them or feared them.

It contains many pictures, including drawings and graphic art, some dating from as far back as the Middle Ages, illustrations from science fiction books and pictures from movies, and drawings I myself and my friend the architect Sam Chermayeff made. There are also maps of cities that children invented. As with the other books in the series, there’s a lot of room for you to draw in and put your dreams and fantasies on paper. You can start right away, building the city in which you’d love to live.
