Description

This visually rich cultural atlas of Seattle explores the mercurial nature of place through the lens of one of the fastest growing cities in America. Through both experiential and data-driven cartography, Seattleness lends itself to longtime residents, newcomers to the city, and those curious about the moody borough that has brought us airplanes, grunge, gourmet coffee, and e-commerce.

In the style of Infinite City and Portlandness, this illustrated book examines an expansive range of topics from UFO sightings to pinball legacies, gray skies to frontier psychology, strong women and strong coffee. Compelling infographic visuals emerge from deep dives into data, unraveling over 50 real and strange narratives about the green metropolis perched at the edge of the Salish Sea.

 

 

MY THOUGHTS

 

The thing I appreciate most about this book is that it goes deeper

into the culture of Seattle, just as the title suggests.

This would be helpful to the tourists, but it goes even deeper than

that. Don't get me wrong, this is NOT a guide to the best sites in

Seattle and all of the ins and outs, this actually shares charts, graphs

and the history of Seattle.

 

I highly recommend this book for Seattle natives, tourists who really

want to understand Seattle more, and for those just curious.

 

Very enjoyable read that gave a lot of details but without being

bogged down.

I would like to thank #NetGalley #Seattleness #SasquatchBooks and the Authors for allowing me to read and review this very enjoyable book!
