Extracts from Italo Calvino's magnificent written sketchbook of fictional cities, Invisible Cities [via cityofsound].

Invisible Cities is one of my favourite books, one of the few I've read that produces such a vast universe with so few strokes. Another (completely different) is Living with Prozac: And Other SSRIs, a collection of personal stories about the many aspects of antidepressants, each between one and three pages long.
