News, dates, and an exhibition
I am happy to let you all know that Virtual Cities has entered its pre-press phase, meaning that all the thoroughly edited, touched-up, and polished texts, illustrations, and maps are now ready to be assembled into the final version of the atlas. There are of course things still left to be done by the excellent Unbound team (mainly design work, type-setting, proofreading, and the final cover), and then there's the actual printing, but the point is that we really are getting there. Actually, we even have a publication date: September 2020! Backers will happily be getting the book a few months earlier than that :)
On other news, Maria's illustrations and our maps from Virtual Cities, along with some sketches, texts, and maps from my own work on the design and planning of urban environments for games [game-cities.com] will be shown at the 'Videojuegos. Los dos lados de la pantalla' (link) exhibition in Madrid from 27, September 2019 to 03, February 2020. A trip to Spain might thus be in order.
Oh, and hope you all have a great summer!
