The British architect Peter Simpson has produced one of the most significant and influential bodies of work of the second half of the 20th century. His books include Urban Structuring, Ordinariness and Light, Without Rhetoric, The Shift, and the influential Team X Primer.

KENNETH ADDISON was a full-time visual artist and art educator. His distinctive fine art collages focus on African American life and culture and incorporate fabrics, batik-processed Japanese papers, oil pastels, and more. Addison was drawn to this book by his love of history and his curiosity about how human societies came into exsitence. He passed away in 2005, shortly after finishing the illustrations for We.
