Cityscape, Ben Johnson's Liverpool edited by Ann Bukantas.

The Liverpool Cityscape was three years in the making and takes in Liverpool's famous skyline from a point high above the Mersey. This beautiful book, edited by Ann Bukantas, offers a unique insight into this important and enormous work by the internationally acclaimed artist, Ben Johnson.

Ben works to the scale of a Renaissance painter, producing what The Guardian has called, 'almost impossibly ambitious cityscapes' of landscapes including Jerusalem, Zürich and Hong Kong. Full colour throughout with fascinating plans, progress shots, articles and interviews, this book is a celebration of the ambition that produced the cityscape and the city it portrays.
