With over 120 illustrations in duotone and colour. Square 4to, illustrated grey card covers with white lettering to front cover, and white and pale blue lettering to spine. "'No Man's Land' is a surreal and terrifying place, a world at once horrific and hilarious. It consists entirely of strange, often sinister interiors; spas that look like forensic laboratories; classrooms so clinical that they fill us with vague, unsettling fears; offices; target ranges; military installations... We know that human beings people these places, but they have scurried away, leaving behind nothing but furniture, machines, instruments, walls, floors, lighting -- the impersonal, neutral artefacts of modern existence. An air of claustrophobia hangs over everything: there is no way in and no way out of such stifling spaces, either physically or ideologically." - from therear cover.
