Inhaltsangabe: Space Needle: The Spirit of Seattle, an illuminating new book about Seattle s iconic needle, was released on the 50th anniversary of the Needle. Extensively researched and written by Knute Skip Berger, it provides a detailed account of the Space Needle s conception, funding, and construction 50 years ago, as well as it s important role in the Century 21 Worlds Fair in 1962 and how it helped define contemporary Seattle in the 50 years after the fair. Berger, columnist for Seattle Magazine and the on-line Seattle news source Crosscut, was named Writer-in-Residence at the Space Needle last year and has used the opportunity to interview a broad spectrum of people who were associated with the construction, design and management of the Space Needle and to dive deep into Space Needle archives and collections for here-to-for untold stories about the storybook structure. With over 210 images, both historical and contemporary, this 184pp coffee table book features the best of the classic images of the needle, as well newly discovered images.
Über den Autor: Known by some as Mossback, and Crosscut's chief Northwest native, Berger is editor-at-large of Seattle magazine, and is a weekly Friday guest on Weekday on KUOW - FM. He is also author of Pugetopolis: A Mossback Takes on Growth Addicts, Weather Wimps, and the Myth of Seattle Nice, (Sasquatch Books, 2009). He lives in Seattle.
