Finally, the big day has arrived – the Kickstarter project about the Kowloon Walled City came to fruition.
20 years after its demolition photographers Greg Girard and Ian Lambot published a new edition of their book “City of Darkness,” the most comprehensive publication on the place to date.
The reprint marks the 20th anniversary of the City’s demolition – and the new edition is fantastic! It comes with lots of new images and several stories have been updated.
I only received it two days ago, and hadn’t had much time to look through it, but so far it is really interesting… and it lists me as one of the Kickstarter supporters on the final pages of the book! Hooray :)
Even my cat Sam is intrigued by it and keeps a close eye on the book (maybe it’s the smell of the new book that appeals to him more than the images? I don’t know).
You can buy your own copy here – and it will go on sale in bookshops in Hong Kong and in the UK soon.
