Anatomy of Norbiton is put together by Toby Ferris.


"A dazzlingly strange thought-experiment in virtual topography, counterfactual space, town-planning and tapirs..."
Robert Macfarlane

"...hypnotic and astonishing and just a real delight"
M. John Harrison

"... a thing of strange and terrible beauty."
Frank Key

"... an extraordinary project, unlike anything else on the web."
Joanna Walsh



The anatomy is scheduled for completion in 2017. Or 2018.
