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 come in the set. The cards are contained in a sturdy box with a lid that snaps shut with invisible magnets.
