Product Details


“[Portlandness] suggests that when we let go of our biases and set off on the city streets, we will stumble upon a Portland we barely imagine.”
The Oregonian

Portlandness: A Cultural Atlas should be required reading for newcomers and natives alike.” 
—Portland Monthly

“Portland State University geography professors Banis and Shobe tap into the popularity of the TV show Portlandia with this entertaining and educational reference.”
Library Journal
“Is there a Portland state-of-mind? Is there a way to objectively look at the peculiar state of being that seems to be Portland, here in the 2010’s, and lay it all out for you, comprehendably? If there is, Portlandness: A Cultural Atlas comes as close as anything can at the moment…a witty, earnest look at what it means to be Portland right here, right now.”
Zehn Katzen
