Spirits of San Francisco

Gary Kamiya’s Cool Gray City of Love was a runaway hit, an award-winner, and a #1 bestseller. Now, he joins forces with iconic, bestselling illustrator Paul Madonna to take a fresh look at this one-of-a-kind city. Marrying image and text in a way no book about this city has done before, Kamiya’s captivating narratives accompany Madonna’s masterful pen-and-ink drawings, breathing life into San Francisco sites both iconic and obscure.

Paul Madonna’s atmospheric illustrations will awe: be amazed by his astonishing wide-angle drawing for a jaw-dropping new perspective on the “crookedest street in the world.” And Kamiya’s engaging prose, accompanying each image, offers fascinating vignettes of this incredible city: witness his story of “Dumptown,” the bizarre community that sprang up in the 19th century on top of a massive garbage dump.
Handsome and irresistible—much like the city it chronicles—Spirits of San Francisco is both a visual feast and a detailed, personal, loving, informed portrait of a beloved city.
