Seattle, City of Literature
Ryan Boudinot is on a mission to get Seattle recognized as an official UNESCO “City of Literature.” There are just a handful of cities world-wide who have earned this distinction, and Boudinot thinks we could (and should) be next. He’s holding a series of conversations on how the process might work, and as part of the planning, he’s asking for your help.
“Here’s my request to you. Start taking photos like this, and send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Pictures of a book you’re reading, with some part of Seattle in the background. I believe in creativity through imposed restrictions, so let’s say no Space Needle, no Pike Place Market. Think about places you love in Seattle that wouldn’t ever appear on a postcard.
Hold out your book, take out your phone, snap a picture, and send it. Let’s see your books!”
James Crossley of Island Books put together a Tumblr page for the images here: http://seattlecityofliterature.tumblr.com/
