Something CityBy Ellice Weaver
Something City is an exploration of modern day living through representations of the lives of different groups of people in an imagined place. Segregated communities of young people, elders, fanatics, techies and the religious live side by side, interweaving and cohabiting in a city they build around themselves. Through snapshots of each community, Ellice Weaver captures both the qualities that make different communities unique, but also what binds them together to make up the modern, multicultural cities that we exist in today. Beautifully composed establishing pages introduce us to each group before we’re taken through a short journey inside each of their worlds. Stunning artwork and wry, odd and moving stories come together to produce a book that is as much an inspired work of imagination as it is an examination of what is important, unique and also universal, about the cities we live in today.
