Roman Mars & Kurt Kohlstedt present The 99% Invisible City: A Field Guide to the Hidden World of Everyday Design
Moderated by Seth Godin
99% Invisible is a big-ideas podcast about small-seeming things, revealing stories baked into the buildings we inhabit, the streets we drive, and the sidewalks we traverse. The show celebrates design and architecture in all of its functional glory and accidental absurdity. Now, in The 99% Invisible City: A Field Guide to Hidden World of Everyday Design, host and creator Roman Mars and digital director and producer Kurt Kohlstedt zoom in on the various elements that make our cities work, exploring the origins and other fascinating stories behind everything from power grids and fire escapes to drinking fountains and street signs. With deeply researched entries and beautiful line drawings throughout, The 99% Invisible City will captivate devoted fans of the show and anyone curious about design, urban environments, and the unsung marvels of the world around them. Joining Mars and Kohlstedt in conversation at this special virtual book talk is Seth Godin, author of 19 best-selling books, including The Dip, What To Do When It's Your Turn (And It's Always Your Turn), and This Is Marketing.
