Austrian cartoonist Ulli Lust resided in the city of Haarlem for two weeks In Februari 2018, to create a citybook about this Dutch city. The result is Lucky City, a city portrait in 20 drawings, in which a flooded Haarlem is portrayed. The artist was triggered by the optimism of the Dutch, who’ve been living their everyday lives for centuries under the constant threat of water.
Citybooks is a project is a project initiated by Flemish-Dutch House deBuren (the neighbours) in cooperation with international partners. They are unique city portraits through words and pictures by international authors and artists.
