I chose Dark Cities by Shyue Woon simply because it blew me away. I had been lucky enough to see the work before the book came out, but the publication that Shyue has made really brings the project to an entirely new level. The three volumes — Carpark, Capsule, and Eujiro — are incredibly immersive and really fascinated me as I browsed through them. It’s a book I’ll be going back to time and time again.
