Cities Of The North | Jones The Planner, Adrian Jones & Chris Matthews
'Leeds is something of a paradox. 'A sublime city destroyed, ' says Alan Bennett, whose timbre instantly evokes a foggy Leeds street in November, painted by Atkinson Grimshaw.' Thus begins the chapter on Leeds from this engaging, amusing and lavishly illustrated book on Northern cities and their special character and changing townscape.
Building on the popular Jones The Planner blog, Cities of the North is a refreshingly irreverent look at the process and politics of town planning, development and regeneration. The cities within include LEEDS, Bradford, Sheffield, Manchester, Newcastle and Liverpool.
