City of Glass—Revised Edition
Douglas Coupland's Vancouver
Fully redesigned, the iconic bestselling book of Coupland’s personal reflections on his home city, which gave rise to the city’s international moniker, City of Glass
Conceived by Douglas Coupland and Judith Steedman in the style of underground Japanese magazines, City of Glass sold more than 15,000 copies when first released in 2000. From the Grouse Grind to glass towers, First Nations to feng shui, Kitsilano to Chinatown, this revised edition reveals Vancouver to the world as the city prepares for the 2010 Winter Olympic Games.
This edition includes:
"[T]here are moments of sparkling insight, and a perceptive reframing of many familiar snapshots of the city, more than enough to make Coupland's tour worthwhile." —Maclean's
"Conversational text swatches are interwoven with brilliant photojournalistic images, giving us a flâneur's-eye-view of Vancouver." —The National Post
"Subjective in tone and sexy to look at, City of Glass is a delightfully outlandish travel book - just the sort of whacked-out guide you wish every was available for every great city in the world." —The Globe and Mail
