The Silent Traveller in San Francisco

$ 17.95
This product is SOLD OUT.


The Silent Traveller Returns! Distinguished author, artist, calligrapher, and poet Chiang Yee wrote and illustrated a dozen ''Silent Traveller'' books, from 1937-1972. The last to focus on an American city was The Silent Traveller in San Francisco, originally published in 1964. Long out-of-print, the book reveals Mr. Chiang's special affection for a city whose fog-draped hills and winding streets recall for him the poetic beauty and mystery of his much loved Chinese landscape. From Market Street to the Golden Gate Bridge, Fisherman's Wharf to Telegraph Hill, Chinatown to Berkeley, Oakland, and the Napa Valley, Mr. Chiang always charms the reader with his quizzical, quiet observations which fuse the old with the new, the historical with the present.Illustrated with 16 color and 50 black-and-white illustrations by Mr. Chiang, the book presents a unique view of one of the world's most enchanting and picturesque cities. Softcover, 384 pages
