Why don't you buy the book and the T-shirt with Dan Perjovschi's drawing for $80? Dan made this drawing in 2007 as a comment to the events in Isola, where Isola Art Center's headquarters at the industrial building of the Stecca were destroyed by real estate promoters in order to build Stefano Boeri's so called "Vertical Forest", two towers with luxury dwellings.
