    From the newly launched used book shop New Metaphor Books:

    Produced to accompany a 2006 exhibition at the Architectural Association School in London, Manifesto For A Cinematic Architecture presents theorist Pascal Schoning’s dream of an architecture that transforms solid material into the appearance of energy and spatiality. Using light as its main building material, it aims to reach an ethereal state which will become real when energized by the people inside it.

    A striking cover of tightly packed Block, but the interior seems not too reader friendly, set in a spindly version of Garamond with ill-advised ornamental ligatures that serve only too distract. The spacing on that anglerfish ‘st’ is especially perplexing.
