Dreams of the city and the places we have lost…

Illusion_Cover

Illusion & Change Manchester, the latest book by Jonathan Schofield, the acclaimed Manchester author, guide and broadcaster, is available now.

Beneath and behind the city we walk through is a past, present and future city. This book takes a trip into this metaphysical other place, conjuring pictures of things that might have been, things that were and things that could be.

There are more than fifty buildings and schemes covered in the book. Some made international news such as the rebuild after the IRA bomb in 1996. Others were sensations such as when Picasso’s Guernica appeared in a Manchester garage in 1939. There are halls, sculptures, commercial buildings, churches, shops, underground canals, bridges, theatres, views, valleys, cliffs and the story of the changing skyline.

Illusion and Change is the sister of Lost & Imagined Manchester which came out in November 2015 and is being reprinted after becoming Waterstones best-selling Manchester book and selling out in seven months.
