In Marseille we were lucky enough to stay for one night in Le Corbusier's Unite d'Habitation or Cite Radieuse. Not only a great photo opportunity but also a relevant base for the book fair where we were showing Leonie's new series 'The Modulors'.

Unite d'Habitation is widely regarded as being Le Corbusier's finest example of his theory of the Modulor, an anthropomorphic unit of measurement for architecture. 

Below is a detail of one of Leonie's drawings from our second base, closer to the Vieux Port in Marseille. A start, perhaps, for a new City Cypher...
Many thanks to Danielle and all who organised the Book Project International. It was a great fair and we hope to return again some day!
