THE TEXTUAL BOOK

For this untraditional guide of the city, I designed an untraditional book to encourage readers to explore San Francisco. Kamiya honestly captures San Francisco’s history by pairing significant spots in the city, from street corners to landmarks, with accounts from the development of the city. The book’s construction allows for a cover-to-cover read, but also for chapters to be read independently. When unscrewed from the book, each chapter becomes a portable guide to be taken to the specific, historic location. I hope that in this reading experience, others can immerse themselves in and find appreciation for the city’s understated sites and history.
