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 comes in the set. The cards are contained in a sturdy box with a lid that snaps shut with invisible magnets. Selected Placenotes - Portland Pioneer Square; Hillsdale Library; The Pearl District Ira; Keller Fountain; Chapman Elementary School; The Rebuilding Center; The Lovejoy Plaza; Ace Hotel Hoyt; Arboretum Silver; Falls State Park; Timberline Lodge; Jean Vollum; National Capital Center; Mt. Angel Abbey Library International; and, Rose Test Garden.
