In times when the New Europe is a buzzword, this book asks how real it is. For over five years, Linda Herzog snapped photographs in her Swiss hometown of Zurich, the former industrial city of Birmingham (UK) and the Turkish metropolis of Istanbul. She chose 52 pictures for the book and compressed them into an open essay on urban reality. The layout was made in Zurich, the typography was made in Cologne, and the printing was made in Istanbul. Awarded: Most Beautiful Swiss Books 2005.
