Portlandia : A Guide for Visitors Paperback
PORTLANDIA is a tie-in to a TV show of the same name, written by the two creators/stars of the show.
It is syled exactly like a Lonely Planet city guide but to the fictional city of "Portlandia" and the unusual residents who make it their home - a militant bike messenger, an artsy couple who attach cut-outs of birds to everything ("put a bird on it!"), an organic farmer who turns out to be a cult leader, an adult hide and seek league, several self-righteous feminist bookstore owners, and a punk rock couple who use the safe word "cacao" to help govern their love life.
The book offers readers a glimpse into the characters, scenarios and themes that make Portlandia tick. It will also contain 20-40 maps/charts/graphs/drawings/photographs throughout.
