Summary:
"[The book] skilfully meshes together the written history of the city and its build environment with that which is less certain, less defined: the invisible and visible seams and ridges that hold the city together. ... We are presented with an array of books, documents, fictional accounts, personal memories, photographs (both original and archival), newspapers, pamphlets, obscure city council publications, surveys, plans, court proceedings and architectural objects. Using these materials, Kreutsfeldt and Malcomess ... take us on a visual and textual journey through the arrangements and specificities of Johannesburg over time and trace the cointours of the places and no-places that constitute the city as both concrete and imaginary."--Back cover.
