Thanks to the support of nearly a thousand people who supported the crowd funding campaign via Pozible and nearly a two years of writing, editing, rewriting, designing and printing I’m pleased to finally be able to say that Creating Cities the book officially exists!
The book has it’s own web site at www.creatingcities.net so for more information about it encourage you to go direct to the site.
Duck over there to find out more or order a copy. The book is available in limited distribution through good book stores (if you want to stock it you can contact us) and in ebook formats as PDF, .mobi and .epub suitable for all the main Ebook reading devices.
If anyone is interested in review copies, the media kit, interviews, copies to give away or anything like that feel free to drop me a line.
My thanks to everyone who has supported this project. I hope the book is an engaging, interesting, inspiring and generally useful read to anyone interested in cities, how they work and why they sometimes don’t.
Over the next few months I expect I will be doing a fair bit of travelling and talking about the book so hopefully I will get to see some of you around and thank you personally.
