50 cities of the usa

Gabrielle Balkan and Sol Linero, the team behind the phenomenal 50 States series, need no introduction.  In 50 Cities of the USA, they set out to do something really special: paint a picture of each city's story, shining "a light on the people who strive to make their communities stronger, the places that encourage creativity, and the moments in history—even the history that we are making now—that highlight the achievements of our nation."

Each city map contains a quick introduction, key facts (including local lingo and a search-and-find game), icons that are unique to each city, a spotlight on a particular neighborhood and a timeline that shows an ideal day spent in the city (take note, travelers!).  Also featured are important industries, experiences, and reading suggestions and resources for further exploration.

An incredible resource, meticulously written and researched, thoughtfully designed and gorgeously illustrated.  We're blown away by the incredible care and work that went into producing 50 Cities.  It's sure to inspire wonder and curiosity in so many ways, and is a must for every home library.  Click here for a preview of the interior.

50 Cities of the USA was written by Gabrielle Balkan, illustrated by Sol Linero and published by Wide Eyed Editions.  The release date is September 7 and it's available for pre-order now.
