An entirely different kind of travel book—a boxed set of cards that guides you to the unique and memorable places that give Seattle its distinctive character.
Places—buildings, neighborhoods, landmarks, and cultural and commercial institutions—help define a city'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 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.
