Cities speak, and these two books, Urban Code and Manhole Covers help us understand their language. Urban Code considers the urban landscape not from the abstract perspective of an urban planner but from the viewpoint of an attentive observer, and is designed to teach us how to read the city. Manhole Covers takes a more detailed look, analyzing its namesake, and documenting this singular form of urban industrial art and its place in American culture.

Urban Code, by Anne Mikoleit and Moritz Pürckhauer. Hardcover. 112 pages. 30 black and white photos, 100 black and white illustrations. Manhole Covers, by Mimi Melnick and Robert A. Melnick. Hardcover. 274 pages.
