It's called Vanishing Vancouver: The Last 25 Years. Apparently it's in book stores now. Check out this post by Miss604 as she sums it up very well indeed! ww. iss604. OAChris says: Attended his lecture on the Evolution of the Vancouver house last evening and picked up a signed copy there.

The original Vanishing Vancouver, published in 1990, explored Vancouver's changing landscape by neighbourhood .

Now, on the 20th anniversary of that important book, Kluckner returns to tell the story of the last two and a half decades in this ever-developing city.

In Vanishing Vancouver: The Last 25 Years, author Michael Kluckner pushes back, back in time and back against the disappearing city he clearly fell in love with. It’s a follow-up to his award-winning 1990 book by the same name that examined the changing city in the wake of Expo ’86. The desire to revisit the evolving history of Vancouver is understandable. It’s a city that refuses to stand still. The changes in the city’s downtown are obvious and visible, but the never-ending development reaches even in my own relatively sleepy East Vancouver neighbourhood.

Michael Kluckner is a Canadian writer and artist. His early books on the history of Canadian cities, heritage, planning issues, and art, include Vancouver The Way It Was, Vanishing Vancouver, Paving Paradise, and British Columbia in Watercolour. He has won numerous awards, including the Duthie Prize, the Vancouver Book Prize, the Toronto Book Prize (short list), the Hallmark Society (Victoria) Award of Merit, and the Heritage Canada Medal of Achievement.

Award-winning author and artist Michael Kluckner takes another look at a city where the only thing that doesn't seem to change is the rapid pace of development.

The original Vanishing Vancouver, published in 1990, explored Vancouver's changing landscape by neighbourhood, from the earliest dwellings to the aftershocks of Expo '86. Its light-filled watercolors and well-informed prose spoke to the concerns of rapid expansion versus historical conservation, and it won the accolades of the City of Vancouver book award and the Duthie prize for BC book publishing.

Now, on the 20th anniversary of that important book, Kluckner returns to tell the story of the last two and a half decades in this ever-developing city. Vanishing Vancouver: The Last 25 Years explores the origins of our landmark buildings and public spaces, our working harbour, our shops, houses, apartments, urban farms, and gardens, and bears witness to the recent dramatic changes that have taken place in them. Many of these changes are the result of city planning policy -- initiatives that aim for "eco-density" and being "the greenest city" -- and throughout the book Kluckner discusses the tensions that have arisen as a result and asks whether the price we are paying is too high.

Vanishing Vancouver: The Last 25 Years is a compelling mix of historical narrative, personal anecdote, and expert, local knowledge. Illustrated with more than 200 new images -- the author's own watercolors and brush-and-ink drawings as well as archival and private photographs, hand-rendered maps, vintage postcards, advertisements, and other ephemera -- this beautiful volume is essential and enjoyable reading for anyone interested in Vancouver's heritage, architecture, and history. Its focus on Vancouver's architecture and current issues make it the perfect complement to Kluckner's Vancouver Remembered, a complete history of the city.
