Market Sketchbook, Anniversary Edition

25th Anniversary Edition

This new edition of the late Victor Steinbrueck’s classic book celebrates the 25th anniversary of the passage of Seattle’s Pike Place Market Initiative, which saved the market from the urban renewal wrecking ball.

Reviews

"Market Sketchbook… consists of more than 200 pen-and-ink drawings of Seattle's 103-year-old Pike Place Market, as well as breezy, handwritten commentary that captures that fabled harborside marketplace well before Seattle's transformation into an upmarket-lifestyle city."—Saveur

"A monument to an unforgettable and significant part of Seattle. . . . this book should be read by all who would replace history with progress. It creates a mood of love and appreciation for all that the Market has been to so many people in the past—and should continue to be for the future. Steinbrueck captures and brings to the reader the full flavor of the Market—it’s like a walk through the wonderful mixing bowl of Seattle’s world."—Pacific Search

"Seattle’s Pike Place Market, a rambling congeries of stores, shops, and stalls, has a history going back to the turn of the century when farmers from all around brought their produce to sell directly to the public. . . . The author is an architect and professor of urban planning, and he has been in love with this market since he was a boy. With more than two hundred pen—and—ink sketches and expertly hand—lettered commentaries, he has caught the flavor and movement of a kind of urban life that is rapidly fading from view."—American Artist
