Hidden Portland!

I haven't seen this book by the Carye Bye yet but it looks great.  It's described as a collection of unique locales and oddities containing watercolor and ink illustrations aside candidly written descriptions and anecdotes that take you on a tour of the overlooked and rarely seen.  Carye Bye steers you from the permanent home of a famous coin that was tossed to decide Portland's name, to a secret toy museum in an unassuming part of town; a n essential book for the curious visitor and resident alike.  Available from Bedouin Books and Amazon.  And check out the Hidden Portland website which is bountiful in sharing lots of interesting secrets about this beloved little city.
