Description

With its spectacular setting between sea, mountains and sky, Vancouver is one of the world's most beautiful and liveable cities. Portrait of Vancouver is a rich depiction of everything BC's sparkling glass and grass metropolis has to offer. Towering skyscrapers, mountaintop views and a walk through the top sights of Stanley Park are captured in stunning photographs.

 

This showy keepsake book collects images of Vancouver's highlights, celebrating Nitobe Gardens, UBC, the downtown area, and beaches, parks and markets all along the city's encircling seawall. Plus take a virtual visit to Granville Island, the Vancouver Aquarium, and across the SeaBus to Capilano Suspension Bridge and Grouse Mountain in photographs that show all to perfection. A breezy text introduces the many sides of this truly green urban centre. A classic souvenir book, with a new look and fully updated text and images.
