The images of post-war German reconstruction shown here in this book (fashioned with high production values at 24 x 35 cms) will be familiar to those who can recognise the apparatus of the Garden City Movement. The urban vistas have their staffage, often stick- legged children and anxious pensioners, but have that chill melancholia of the flawed Utopia, etched in sharp, well-chosen sunlight.
