After a Seattle Public Library launch that was so successful that demand was deemed for ‘more,’ Susanna Ryan, the peripatetic Seattle creator of Seattle Walk Report, an Instagram chronicle of walking in Seattle that has given seed to the lovely illustrated book that is Seattle Walk Report: An Illustrated Walking Tour through 23 Seattle Neighborhoods (Sasquatch Books) pays a Sunday afternoon visit here.
"Seattle is a beautiful city...we're the country's fastest-growing big city for a reason: People really, really want to live here. On a clear day, a person in the right spot can turn their head and see Mount Rainier, Puget Sound, and the Olympic and Cascade mountain ranges. But it's not just our views—as Seattle Walk Report, a new collection of comics illustrating actual things seen and found while walking Seattle's streets, makes clear. All you have to do to discover the treasures of Seattle is go on a walk...Seattle Walk Report's 150-plus pages of twee, guidebook-style comics create an endearing collection of the small details that make Seattle a home." —The Stranger.
