the literary city
Super cool map I found while trying to create an at least semi-unique Evite for my November Book Club. We're reading "Tales of the City" by Armistead Maupin (set in SF in the late 70's,) and it just so happens there's a quotation from the book on the poster. I'm pretty proud of myself for finding it.
The origin of the map, an SF Chron article from July:
It states: "Ian Huebert's beautiful, whimsical literary map - loosely inspired by one of St. Petersburg, Russia, by Vera Evstafieva and Andrew Biliter - fittingly evokes the colorful, free-form and text-rich rock concert posters from a music scene that put San Francisco on the map in the 1960s."
I want one!
