Places—buildings, neighborhoods, landmarks, and cultural and commercial institutions—help define a region's unique character, its "sense of place." This is the key concept behind Placenotes, a wholly new type of travel guide that features the "one of a kind" places that make a region or city distinctive. Not a conventional travel book, Placenotes is a set of individual cards that describe specific places. The front of each card has a color photograph that captures the spirit of a particular place. The back of the card tells the story of the place, often with commentary by a local expert. It also provides all the practical details you need to plan your visit. A map, index of places, and key to symbols come in the set. The cards are contained in a sturdy box with a lid that snaps shut with invisible magnets.

Placenotes is the creation of Kevin Keim, Director of the Charles W. Moore Center for the Study of Place in Austin, Texas. Charles W. Moore (1925–1993) was a world-renowned architect, educator, and writer. To carry on his work, the Moore Center was founded in 1994 to teach people about the importance of good places, design, and architecture.
