The Zinester's Guide to Portland (2007): A Low/No Budget Guide to Visiting and Living in Portland, Oregonby Shawn Granton and Nate Beaty
Synopses & Reviews
Shawn Granton (Ten Foot Rule) and Nate Beaty (Brainfag Comics) edited a really comprehensive guide of things to do in Portland, OR. Features tons of information on various neighborhoods, bridges, eateries, hangouts, bars, places that sell zines, and how to navigate through Portland. A crucial resource for those visiting the city or those that have lived here for years. Also includes great line drawings by Nathan Beaty, Chris Larson, Tim Root, Dylan Williams, Chris Cilla, Carolyn Main, Malady, Khris Soden, and more!
"Longtime residents and visitors alike will love The Zinester's Guide to Portland. The once 16-page pamphlet is now a 128-page book on its fourth edition, loaded with gems on how to have a cheap and amusing time in the Rose City (a.k.a. Bridge City or Stumptown). After a brief history of the city's founding (it involves two men in canoe), you'll find helpful transportation advice and a breakdown of the city's offerings by location. Its exhaustive listings boast everything from arboretums to sex shops, vegan doughnuts to free museum passes, and dollar Pabst to the Mudeye Puppet Company. My favorite entry was for The Vern/Hanigan's, which directs visitors to 'look for the TAVERN sign with the 'T' and the 'A' burnt out.' The subtle charm and nuances will leave you wishing there were guides like this for every city." Utne Reader, Elizabeth Ryan
