About this book
A brilliant reinvention of the traditional atlas which uses 12 artist, 2 cartographers and 22 colour maps to produce a thematic exploration of the area. 17 colour and 3 b/w illustrations.
What makes a place? This title searches out the answer by examining the many layers of meaning in one place, the San Francisco Bay Area. It explores the area thematically - connecting, for example, Eadweard Muybridge's foundation of motion-picture technology with Alfred Hitchcock's filming of "Vertigo".
