Review Portlandness

PortlandnessDern cartography tells the hidden stories of Portland in these fascinating and colorful infographic maps When mapmaking takes on nontraditional topics like patterns of graffiti  locations of strip clubs or even which neighborhoods favor which house color. This might be my new favorite way of learning about cities and geographic regions It’s historical storytelling around a collection of atlas atlases Altalasi Features include trends and locations of graffiti art chicken coops city parks restaurants gentrification ghost sightings and so much It’s too bad these authors haven’t published on other cities Great read
