Description : On an Earth that is very much like our own, the civilizations of ancient man have been crushed; the giant glaciers that cover the northern part of the globe continue, even now, moving ever south, grinding the remains of the sky-touching cities of men beneath them. This Ice Age created warfare between two mighty nations, and in the midst of this mechanized slaughter, a virulent influenza plague ultimately killed most of the human population of the Earth within just one year. Now, almost 2,000 years later, some of the survivors of that plague have again gathered together in a few vast city-states. In the wild lands between these megalopolises, the individuals who'd chosen not to return to the sprawl of the city-states roam as the Free Tribes in the company of sabretooth cats, mammoths, and dire wolves. In this world there is only a tentative peace; there are those in the Black City of the West for whom only one thing matters: the power to dominate and subjugate; the power to kidnap and enslave children and women into a sexual bondage purporting to save their souls, but in reality to supply wealth to a priesthood whose hearts are as black as the zeppelins they fly. Into this steam-power world, two young people must journey. It will be a journey from innocence that will carry them from their tribe into the black heart of the basalt city. It will be a journey that will change them forever and bring them closer together than they'd thought possible.
Description : "The Black City of Nuerva" is a personal journey, written in first person. The main character is written as both male and female (considered as queer writing). The book is full of original artwork, with 60 paintings created as a re-interpretation of what is happening in the various scenes of the story. The book and the original artwork took several years and a lot of hard work to complete. **Synopsis** The day of the attack, I was sitting at the park, reading a book. Slavers rode in on monstrous ships. They took everyone, including me. I was taken to a horrible black city called Nuerva, where the buildings were jagged lines cutting across the sky. A man, the Captain, took me as his plaything and kept me as his own prisoner. After many days, I finally found the courage to escape. Alone and frightened, I ran to the furthest edge of the city, and there I found hope. There was another city in the distance—a bright, colorful one. All I had to do was cross the bridge. I didn’t make it. I was shot at the edge of that bridge which connected the light and the dark cities, moments from freedom. But I wouldn’t die just yet. It wasn’t my time. Notes: This book was simplified into a version so Tablets could play it properly. 16:10 Some of the art was reworked / resized for it and the pages are a dark gray so it will be softer on the eyes and easier to read on screens. double spreads were rotated and I recommend you to view the book with a black background.

Description : "This is a unique and bold story about architecture that boldly challenges Israeli's national identity politics and the official narrative that was used to construct Tel Aviv's identity, culture, and rhetoric. The narrative goes something like this: the white city of Tel Aviv was founded in 1909 to the immediate North of the walled port city of Jaffa under an urban plan developed by Sir Patrick Geddes, which reflected the most advanced and modern organic planning principles. The buildings of Tel Aviv were designed by Bauhaus architects who were trained in Europe before immigrating to Israel. They created an outstanding architectural ensemble of the modern movement in a new cultural context. Tel Aviv became Israel's foremost economic and metropolitan nucleus and has always been considered one of the outstanding examples of innovative town-planning ideas of the first part of the 20th century. This book shows how Tel Aviv's tale of a modernist 'white city' that 'emerged from the dunes' and gained international recognition when it was designated a UNESCO world heritage site in 2003 hides behind its skyline the story of a city whose history has been buried. White City, Black City offers a new narrative, in which Tel Aviv is born in Jaffa and is shaped according to its conflict with Jaffa, thus influencing the fate of Palestine, Israel and the Middle East. This new urban parable is not only about architecture, building and writing, but also at its heart about war, destruction, erasure, and the erasure of the erasure. as Joana Gonen, wrote in time out, "White City, Black City" is not a book about architecture. It is a political text written in clear language, under the cover of a book on architecture... one of the most radical texts published in Hebrew in recent years"--
Description : Located just outside of St. Louis, Kinloch was once a community locked off from the rest of the area by natural and man-made barriers. In spite of a lack of financial resources, it once provided its residents with a school district, city hall, post office, business district, and recreational facilities. Residents will recognize Dunbar Elementary, the oldest school for blacks in St. Louis County, Holy Angels, the oldest continuing black parish in the St. Louis Archdiocese, as well as former residents Congresswoman Maxine Waters and political activist Dick Gregory. Eventually, due to insufficient revenue, this once thriving community fell into decline, and is now struggling to keep its small town values and ideals alive.
