About This Book...

A humble handbook of prosaic magic & poetic justice for adventurous & considerate travellers enclosing a few field-tested methods to harbour the strange & the enchanted. 

“Activating Cities” by Noam Assayag takes you on a journey across a city but also through your own imagination. Using this book you can learn to spot the signs which surround you, to follow them, and, ultimately, to create some on your own. A practical guide to Cartesian Surrealism or a travel guide to collage-making, “Activating Cities” is a beautifully written book, which is all about curiosity, sensitivity, and the ability to bring magic into the everyday.
