Everything Sings

Cover_Fullsize

In his pursuit of a “poetics of cartography,” the experience of place is primary, useless knowledge is exalted, and representation strives toward resonance. Our perception of maps and how to read them changes as we regard their beauty, marvel at their poetry, and begin to see the neighborhoods we live in anew. Everything Sings weaves a multi-layered story about one neighborhood as well as about the endeavor of truly knowing the places which we call home.

It is a wonderful book with some fantastic illustrations presenting a very different narrative map of place.

No surprise its in its second edition, it will stretch far beyond that.
