Note from poster (Wendy Darling): I’ve gone through the book and it’s really cool, with essays, tons of illustrations and a big list of urban and new urban projects throughout metro Atlanta. If you are interested in how Atlanta can and is becoming more urban, or regaining its urban past, you will love this book.
