The Metropolis of Tomorrow. HUGH FERRISS.

The Metropolis of Tomorrow

New York: Ives Washburn, 1929, 1929. First edition. 4to; 144 pp.; sixty monochrome illustrations after drawings by the author. Small rubbed spot to front cover; else a very good copy in original black cloth, lacking the dust jacket. Ferriss's renderings of modern buildings are dark and foreboding; even those washed with sunlight seem somewhat menacing. Although many the drawings have mostly pragmatic origins (zoning studies, etc.), they have become design and cultural icons. Item #011186

Price: $250.00
