Description
Originating in the Paris of the 1950s, psychogeography continues to find retrospective validation in much earlier traditions, from the visionary writing of William Blake and Thomas De Quincey to the rise of the flâneur in the streets of nineteenth-century Paris. Today, its ideas hold greater currency than ever through the popularity of writers such as Iain Sinclair and Peter Ackroyd and the film-maker Patrick Keiller. This book provides the urban wanderer and armchair traveller with new ways of apprehending our surroundings, transforming the familiar streets of our daily experience into something new and unexpected.
