It so happens that I am the last one to have had a last look at this book before it went to the printers. I was its clear eye, the fault-hunter. That of course involved the check-up of each photograph: I was careful to wether the captions were placed correctly, next to the right image.
By cleaning up each speck of dust from this illustrated text, I realized that the signs and engravings had always been speaking to me, telling me something about the world. They have surrounded me every day of my life, like spiritual helpers unriddling the Meaning. They were always around, indicating what happened inside the main buildings of the city, eyeing me from the nameplates of newspapers and shining in metal from the chests of the coolest of us.
As innocent logo inventors, the graphic artists, the plastic artists or the architects from those days, were without their knowledge working through each line they turned, each arc of a circle they made, on the weaving of a time that can only now be understood.
