Illustration based on "Octavia" from Invisible Cities by Rebecca Chappell

If you choose to believe me, good. Now i will tell how Octavia, the spider-web city, is made. There is a precipice between two steep mountains: the city is over the void, bound to the crests with ropes and chains and catwalks.

“Hay un precipicio entre dos montañas abruptas: la ciudad está en el vacío, atada a las dos crestas por cuerdas y cadenas y pasarelas. Ésta es la base de toda la ciudad: una red que sirve para pasar y sostener. Todo lo demás, en vez de alzarse encima, cuelga hacia abajo: escalas de cuerda, hamacas, casas en forma de bolsa. “Suspendida en el abismo, la vida de los habitantes de Octavia es menos incierta que en otras ciudades. Saben que la resistencia de la red tiene un límite”.
