A Cleveland standby has gotten a makeover.
Since 1993, this colorful coffee-table photography book has been a standard gift used by Clevelanders who love to show off their city to out-of-towners.
Now, a new edition brings it up to date with the city’s latest landmarks and refurbished highlights.
Photographer Jonathan Wayne updated several of the 102 photographs each time his book was reprinted during the past nine years, to keep pace with the changing city. Out went the old—like the Browns, in 1995; Municipal Stadium; and the Cleveland Ballet. In came the new—Jacobs Field, the Rock Hall, the Great Lakes Science Center, the new Browns, the Cleveland Botanical Garden’s Hershey Children’s Garden, and others.
Wayne also added photographs in response to customer requests. Most often requested: a photo of the renowned Cleveland Orchestra performing at Severence Hall (added in this new edition). The book’s most recent addition is the striking Frank Gehry–designed Peter B. Lewis Building, which opened in October, 2002.
Now, enough changes have accumulated to warrant the publication of a new edition. More than a quarter of the book’s photos are different from the first printing. The book’s new cover reflects the current shape of Cleveland’s skyline (including the new Carl B. Stokes U.S. Courthouse). And the notes section was carefully updated with factual details about each place photographed.
Especially popular with business travelers (in part because of its compact size), Cleveland: A Portrait of the City has been taken as a gift to countries on all seven continents—including Antarctica, in 2001.
