Published by Tombstone Press
Ken Hollings Talk 7pm

How Buildings Kill is a visceral and illustrative examination of urban living and architecture through a physical interaction with print. Combining provocative writing and innovative image making, the book plays with the possibilities and limitations of print.

The physicality of space, the fabric of our constructed environments, the nostalgia of utopia, the rapid gentrification of cities, urban brutality and the Situationist Internationals are all explored in the first book from publishers Tombstone Press. How Buildings Kill is an anthology of writing featuring the Marquis De Sade, Owen Hatherley, Ian Nairn, Ken Hollings, David Dawkins and an interview with Jacqueline De Jong, alongside a collection of illustrations by Gareth Barnett.

Tombstone Press is a Hackney based publishing house committed to confronting the way we interact with the book, exploring the way we experience and construct narratives through the physicality of printed matter. #howbuildingskill
