It just so happens that the book I was reading had a picture on p 123, and the caption read:

"Lot and his daughters (1520) attributed to Lucas van Leyden. This depiction of the fall of Sodom, with its intimation of incest, has been a popular subject for artists. The destruction of sinful cities, and a suspicion of the urban is found throughout Vedic, Koranic, Classical and Judeo- Christian texts. Similarly, present-day notion of “urbicide” – attacks on the cosmopolitan and the multi-cultural – have been used
to explain assault on cities such as Dubrovnik and Sarajevo."

Did you scan it in black and white or it's like this?
The book seems interesting, is it exclusive for architects?
