Routes book is out – toilets await.

Thursday, October 27th, 2011

Finally the book that accompanies the research project Routes, Roads, and Landscapes: Aesthetic Practices en route 1750–2015 has landed on my desk. You can peruse the table of contents and read the introduction at the publisher’s website.

The book is in an unusual format, as you can see from the image. The landscape format (haha) works really well for this, as it obviously should. What is even better, we invested the rest of the project’s funds to get the book produced with full color photographs, so that you can see the toilet buildings that feature in my article Stop, rest, and digest. Feeding people into nature in their full glory!

As with all Ashgate hardcovers, the price is much too high for individuals to pay (125 US$). So the best way to get your hands on this volume is to tell your library staff that this is a book that you would like to read and that is relevant for the library’s collection.
