epub The Cities Book

Book description

I actually bought this for my mom, as a follow-up to The Travel Book which she loved. While I remain very impressed with the design and concept, I can't help wondering about the photography choices.

I applaud the effort for not showing the same, tired old images of the standard tourist sites, but I feel like this particular selection too often relies on snapshots that are almost completely irrelevant in terms of conveying the true heart of the cities. For example, having grown up in Washington, DC, I can tell you that there's much more to the city than the Capitol building and the Monument (which thankfully, this book doesn't show)—but there's also much more than a random public school football game and a nearly-abstract closeup of a Georgetown shop window. Both could have come from almost any small town in America, and hardly represent the true essence of the nation's capital.

I do think that the content holds its own, however, and in all fairness, there are plenty of other images that do represent their cities quite well. Just a few too many that, in my opinion, don't.
