Description

Demonstrating how aerial movement and height intersect with popular "superman" discourses of the time, Adnan Morshed reveals the relationship between architecture, art, science, and interwar pop culture. Featuring a marvelous array of never before published illustrations, this richly textured study of utopian imaginings illustrates America's propulsion into a new cultural consciousness.
