The city of eufemia where people exchange things

Illustrating Italo Calvino by David Fleck

David Fleck - 'Invisible Cities', 2012 An ongoing personal project to illustrate the book Invisible Cities by Italo Calvino.

Now I shall tell of the city of Zenobia, which is wonderful in this fashion: though set on dry terrain it stands on high pilings, and the houses are of bamboo and zinc, with many platforms and balconies placed on stilts at various heights, crossing one another, linked by ladders and haging sidewalks, surmounted by cone-roofed belvederes, barrels storing water, weather vanes, jutting pulleys, and fish poles, and cranes. Pag. 30
