About the Book
This one-of-a-kind coffee table book is not really a comprehensive tour guide, since some wonderful local attractions are not included here. It's rather a gallery of 191 high quality, colorful images I've gathered over 4-5 years to belie Pittsburgh's historic Smoky City image and to spotlight the rich tapestry and history of the neighborhoods.
Colors Of Pittsburgh: North Shore and Lower North Side unfolds as a journey up from the Allegheny River on the North Shore, first into the Allegheny Commons park and then exploring the lower Northside neighborhoods. Minimal text establishes the context for each of the chapters as well as some historic and other interesting insights into the communities.
In 2016, I launched a creative experiment in publishing a series of "Colors Of..." photo books with images I've gathered over the last several years. This bookstore features the fruits of the effort to date. Enjoy and share with fans of photography, Pittsburgh and, especially, brilliant color. These make great, one-of-a-kind gifts for friends, family and professional associates. The three books featured here include: • Colors of Pittsburgh: North Shore & North Side • Colors of Pittsburgh: Downtown & The Strip District • Colors of Nature: Nature and Man Embracing Nature. Background: My 39-year career in communications evolved from media support in universities... to commercial and public television production... to crafting marketing, PR and fund raising solutions.
