Overview

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 book that features the "one of a kind" places that make a city distinctive. This set of Placenotes guides you to places where you can experience the authentic culture of Houston. For visitors, these are the "must see" places. For Houston residents, Placenotes offers the perfect opportunity to become deeply acquainted with the places that distinguish their city from all others—an opportunity to invest in the life of the place.

Not a conventional travel book, Placenotes—Houston is a set of individual cards that describe forty-seven unique places in the city. 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 people need to plan their visit. A Houston map, index of places, and key to symbols card comes in the set. The cards are contained in a sturdy box with a lid that snaps shut with invisible magnets.
