About the Author:

Santi Visalli's photographs have appeared in Time, Newsweek, and the New York Times. He is the author of Universe's San Francisco and New York.

Bill Kurtis is well-known to Chicagoans as co-anchor of the nightly news on WBBM-TV, Chicago.

From Publishers Weekly:

Freelance photojournalist Visalli's superb color pictures celebrate the architecture, vistas, roadways and artwork of the Windy City. As Kurtis, a Chicago television anchor, notes in the foreword, Chicago rose like a phoenix from the ashes of the Great Fire of 1871, and new edifices were fashioned from incombustible materials like brick, stone, iron and slate. Visalli depicts such older architectural greats as the Adler and Sullivan Auditorium Theater, as well as giant newcomers like the Sears Tower and the John Hancock Center. Kurtis refers to contemporary slums with their "wanton" hunger and violence, but Visalli reveals the fashionable Gold Coast on Lake Shore Drive, sculptures by Calder, Picasso and Henry Moore, the University of Chicago campus, the trading floor at the Chicago Board of Trade and the facade of the Art Institute. Curiously, the Baha'i Temple in suburban Wilmette is included among the examples of "urban" grandeur. Captions are placed at the end of the book, which is cumbersome.
