This book pioneered the concept of townscape. 'Townscape' is the art of giving visual coherence and organization to the jumble of buildings, streets and space that make up the urban environment. It has been a major influence on architects, planners and others concerned with what cities should look like.
'A welcome reissue of this influential work, with acute observations on the English urban landscape, fully backed up with photographs and the author's characteristic drawings.'
