Introducing the book, David Wild explains that the impulse for this work lies in the aftermath of a fire in his house: his scorched books lent themselves to collage.

Introducing the book, David Wild explains that the impulse for this work lies in the aftermath of a fire in his house: his scorched books lent themselves to collage. He goes on to sketch the cultural-political climate in Britain over the last 40 years: the backdrop to his work as an architect and (less directly) to this book. Fragments of utopia’ is a moving, amusing, and sometimes savagely ironic sideways look at the Modern Movement, skilfully composed and beautifully produced. The collages nicely complement the short texts, cheeky in their juxtaposition of people and places, and with apt use of postage stamps as temporal icons. ISBN 90-6450-344-3 Price nlg 4.
