Vanishing Vancouver, Kluckner, Michael
3 Kluckner, Michael Vanishing Vancouver
North Vancouver, BC Whitecap Books 1990 1895099242 / 9781895099249 First Edition Hardcover Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket Illustrated by Author 
Only slight wear to book and dust jacket ; Dust jacket in Mylar jacket protector. A bright, solid book in near-fine condition.; Watercolor paintings; 12.90 X 9.60 X 1 inches; 208 pages; "Vanishing Vancouver is an extraordinary collection of watercolours painted in the late 1980s, many of downtown buildings and houses that have since been demolished, and others that are doomed by the changing nature and growth of the city." Award-winning author and artist Michael Kluckner takes another look at a city where the only thing that doesn't seem to change is the rapid pace of development. Vanishing Vancouver explores the origins of our landmark buildings and public spaces, working harbour, shops, houses, apartments, urban farms and gardens, and bears witness to the recent dramatic changes that have taken place in them. Many of these changes are the result of city planning policy-initiatives that aim for eco-density and being the greenest city-and throughout the book Kluckner discusses the tensions that have arisen as a result and asks whether the price we are paying is too high. Vanishing Vancouver: The Last 20 Years is a compelling mix of historical narrative, personal anecdote and expert, local knowledge. Illustrated with more than 200 new images-the author's own watercolours and brush-and-ink drawings, as well as archival and private photographs, hand-rendered maps and vintage postcards, advertisements and other ephemera-this beautiful volume is essential and enjoyable reading for anyone interested in Vancouver's heritage, architecture and history.
