SprawlCode is out!

My book was released last spring and is currently available through the publishers Preacher's Biscuit Books. According to their press release:
Chris Burnett has been wrestling with language in relation to places since the early 1990's. Over time, he developed a software that enabled him to make pictures of places out of bodies of texts. For Burnett, these word-pictures "form a patter, a linguistic snapshot of unruly growth principle, interlinking the edges of city and highway, story and image, computer code and text." SprawlCode:descriptions is his most comprehensive statement to date. It is an enigmatic manual that brings together over 350 descriptions of sprawl in 14 separate chapters with an illuminating preface and image index.
