San Francisco: A 3D Keepsake CityscapeSan Francisco: A 3D Keepsake Cityscape by Charlotte Trounce

Candlewick Press (2013)

This is a fun and beautifully illustrated cut-out novelty book of landmarks in San Francisco – like a map book. It is well done and accurate enough to inspire any visitor to the city or remind someone of the terrific trip they had once. With detailed map scenes of Fisherman’s Wharf, the Golden Gate Bridge, Lombard Street, China Town and other easily recognizable parts of the City by the Bay, it is a terrific visual book and enjoyable for young children as well as adults. The book comes in a cardboard sleeve for easy shelving, making it durable and a great novelty for anyone who loves San Francisco.
