Dick City was born out the overwhelming need for Leeds to have a small publication dedicated to the city’s phallic architecture. Upon starting the project it quickly became apparent that Leeds does not, in fact, have any buildings shaped like huge dicks. What it lacks in dick architecture, however, it more than makes up for in it’s population. The Dick is a familiar sight from Burley to Beeston, Headingley to Hyde Park to Holbeck (especially Hyde Park), and everywhere in between. This publication is a homage to The Dick. Their style, their actions and their lives.
Everyone has a dick in them somewhere. Welcome to Dick City.
*Also we drew some knobs on stuff because it’s funny.
