Description

"The maps themselves are things of beauty."- The New York Times

Explore the hidden histories of San Francisco, New Orleans, and New York with this brilliant reinvention of the traditional atlas. From Rebecca Solnit, Rebecca Snedeker, and Joshua Jelly-Schapiro.

In the past decade, Rebecca Solnit-aided by local writers, artists, historians, urbanists, ethnographers, and cartographers-has compiled three stunning atlases that have radically changed the way we think about place. Each atlas provides a vivid, complex look at the multi-faceted nature of a city as experienced by its different inhabitants, replete with the celebrations and contradictions that make up urban life.

This three-volume paperback set contains:
  • The original, gorgeously designed atlases- Infinite City: A San Francisco Atlas; Unfathomable City: A New Orleans Atlas ; and Nonstop Metropolis: A New York City Atlas
  • Three new and updated, full-color, fold-out posters for each city, including the popular "City of Women" map
  • A new and thoughtful essay by Rebecca Solnit reflecting on the project ten years after the publication of the first atlas

A stunning collection, this boxed set is a perfect treasury of imagination and insight, a rich people's history of these infinite cities.
