“Full Frontal T.O.” from Coach House Press is a straight forward chronicle of TORONTO streetscapes by archivist PATRICK CUMMINS. Winner of the 2013 Heritage Toronto Award of Excellence, the book shows us how our city looks, lives and changes over time, block by block, facade by facade. Among other bookshops it’s now available at the Art Gallery of Ontario for about $25.
“Full Frontal T.O.” features over 400 photos of TORONTO’s messy urbanism, with accompanying text by urban explorer SHAWN MCALLEF.

PATRICK CUMMINS: “The lives that are lived in these buildings change and mold them to their shape. We try to control this, but these things are just happening.”
