  • Illustrated Invisible Cities

    An occasionally-updated list of illustrations of Italo Calvino's Invisible Cities, newest first.

    Mikhail Viesel has illustrated every city in IC (text in Russian, though the explanation is in English)

    Roman Ondak's work (and workshops) cite Invisible Cities (and remind us of Paul Noble's work); Sergio Bonelli Editore illustrators made 11 drawings for the Milano Triennale; and here's one more city. Christine Boyer's Cybercities is an interesting read.

    Our own illustrations: We're starting to post some current art projects: illustrations for Italo Calvino's Invisible Cities, etc. Some of this was discussed on an Edward Tufte thread on the London Underground map, where Jeffrey Berg pointed us on to these maps of internet and p2p networks.

    Wayne Thiebaud illustrated a limited-run edition by Arion Press, see a great set of images here. "The artist Wayne Thiebaud contributed 12 drawings, with the idea that the images of cities and objects remain invisible until the reader takes action. To realize this concept, Andrew Hoyem designed the book with the drawings printed on clear plastic in different colors of inks, each matching the color of the following sheet. The images are revealed only when the transparent sheet is turned back onto the preceding page, a white sheet with printed text." Also: the related Souvenirs of Cities print. (His Hill City (Day City), 1981 is slightly ICish, and reminiscent of the urban canyons of Brazil.)

    The Illuminated Italo Calvino project (tantalising, because there aren't any pictures. Nor here.)

    Not an illustration, but an interesting project by Medialab's Rich Streitmatter-Tran on Impossible/Invisible Forms, which planned to render visually four narrative strands/accounts - those of Calvino, Polo, Khan, the reader. A project that might work better for IC's If On A Winter's Night a Traveller. (And R.S-T wrote to say the project hasn't made huge leaps forward yet, and suggests Murakami's Hard Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World as another interesting target)

    Other things: Binary Bonsai's concepts and renderings for Baucis; Lynne Devine, Glasgow School of Art; Catherine Rive (slightly ambiguous as to whether it's an illustration of IC or not); possible illustration in an essay called Utility and Uselessness; something by Martin Lee
