New edition of the City Guide released

Casterman published a revised and expanded edition. An incomprehensible neglect has finally been repaired. This is the first guide devoted to “Obscure Cities.” Through the journey made by Benoît Peeters and François Schuiten and thirty years of careful research, it is now possible to discover in all its richness a world too long regarded as legendary. We have included in this Guide: Maps and plans, details of the flora and fauna, fine arts, science and technical descriptions of the main crossing points: the Palais de Justice in Brussels, metro Arts et Metiers in Paris, the Museum A. Desombres, practical information on housing, transportation, food and wine, an evocation of great cities like Alaxis, Blossfeldtstad, or Xhystos and Calvani, portraits of famous people or unfairly overlooked as Joseph Abraham, Ernest Dersenval, Durain-Laure de Montignac, Eugen Robick, Axel Wappendorf.
