"This visually rich cultural atlas of Seattle explores the mercurial nature of place through the lens of one of the fastest growing cities in America. Through both experiential and data-driven cartography, Seattleness lends itself to longtime residents, newcomers to the city, and those curious about the moody borough that has brought us airplanes, grunge, gourmet coffee, and e-commerce. In the style of Infinite City and Portlandness, this illustrated book examines an expansive range of topics from UFO sightings to pinball legacies, gray skies to frontier psychology, strong women and strong coffee. Compelling infographic visuals emerge from deep dives into data, unraveling over 50 real and strange narratives about the green metropolis perched at the edge of the Salish Sea"--… (more)

What a fine treat this book is! Beautiful, informative, positive; I think Greg Scruggs from the Seattle Stranger said it best: Seattleness Should Be the Required Handbook for Everyone Who Lives Here.

Indeed, this is a great addition to your shelf of Seattle books. Because it is a series of clever snapshots and visualized data about a myriad of Seattle topics--any of which can be explored further by digging into the awesome bibliography/sources at the back of the book.--Seattleness is a great "starter book" if you want to learn a little bit about a lot of things related to the city and region.

It's also a great addition if you collect books on mapping and/or data visualization, or about cultural atlases, like Rebecca Solnit's books on San Francisco and New Orleans (that said, I find Seattleness more interesting, inventive, and with far less cant than Solnit's work). ( )

Loved this book! I received an advance copy from NetGalley, and enjoyed it so much that I ordered two additional copies to give to friends for Christmas!
If you live in Seattle, or have any interest in visiting there, this book is for you. Chock full of interesting infographics about the city. Crazy charts about the rain, the mountains, the terrain, the streets, the explosion of construction, and on and on.
I guarantee that you will return to it over and over, discovering something new every time you pick it up! ( )
