The Literary City

Artist Ian Huebert has created a new kind of map of San Francisco. A literary map of quotes morphed over the hills and valley and flats of the city. And while it may take a second to figure out why a particular line was used for a neighborhood, that’s part of the wonder of the map.

Electric Works gallery is selling prints of the map either signed ($25) or unsigned ($15). I think they would make a great, unique holiday gift, especially for an avid reader.

Here’s the description on from the gallery web site: “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.”
