This is Portland is a first-hand look at a city that people can't seem to stop talking about. It's a guidebook of sorts, but not to restaurants and sightseeing. Instead, Alexander Barrett is your friendly guide to the quirky characters and atmosphere of Portland, Oregon and how fun, beautiful, and ridiculous it can be. With its approachable, often hilarious tone, this book is perfect for anyone who wants to learn more about bikes, beards, beers, rain, and everything else important about the city you've heard you should like.

About the Author:

Alexander Barrett is a writer, an illustrator, and a copywriter at Wieden+Kennedy. He has contributed projects to Adult Swim and the Warner Bros. Creative Lab, and is a former resident of Portland.

Review:

"Barrett’s witty tribute, This is Portland, is composed of micro-essays on what keeps Portland weird (and great), from $3 movies and backyard chickens to tattoos and tater tots. Another Powell’s bestseller, this Portland primer is must-read material for visitors and residents alike." Travel Portland

"If you're a newcomer to Portland, it's the letter home you're too busy to write yourself. If you're an old-time resident, it's a look into what those green-haired, skinny-jeaned young people are up to." Portland Monthly

"This book he offers great little insights into such things as rain, Portland’s nicknames, food carts, bands, Portland drivers, strip clubs, tattoos, tater tots, snow, bikes, beer and much more. Really, you should just read it." Portland Tribune
