Spirit of Place: Baltimore's Favorite Places, Autographed
Spirit of Place: Baltimore's Favorite Spaces by Sarah Achenbach and Bill McAllen captures how Baltimore's architecture, neighborhoods and public places and spaces-the celebrated, the everyday and the forgotten-resonate in our lives and memories. We may admire architecture for its design, grace and function, but it's how we interact with a building or place-the way we inhabit it, and it inhabits us-that gives it its soul.
A one-of-a-kind pictorial and narrative tour of the Baltimore region, the book is equal parts fine art photography book and oral history celebrating 56 places that put the charm in Charm City. Recollections filled with nostalgia, triumphs, yearnings, sadness and hope abound in the book's exquisite black-and-white portraits and engaging reflections, including essays by architect Tom Gamper, historic preservationist Tyler Gearhart, novelist Laura Lippman, and journalist, author and television producer David Simon.
