Product Description


This is one of a series of compact books designed to celebrate the essence of each of the 50 United States, illustrating and describing its natural wonders, historical and cultural milestones, industrial innovations, and personalities who have helped to shape the state's distinctive heritage. The illustrations encompass fine and folk art, architecture, crafts, and photographs of people and places. Also included are lists of museums, historical societies and tourist attractions, and a perennial calendar of events. Maryland, the focus of this book, was one of the original 13 colonies, and the home of four signers of the Declaration of Independence, and of America's premier family of painters, the Peales. Encompassed by the book are seafood-packed Chesapeake Bay, the US Naval Academy at Annapolis, the Baltimore Orioles' Camden Yards, glorious gardens, and the legacies of Marylanders such as H.L. Mencken, Edgar Allan Poe, Francis Scott Key and his great-nephew (F. Scott Fitzgerald), Thurgood Marshall, Ella Fitzgerald and Babe Ruth.

HASH(0x8c5dce40) out of 5 stars An Espresso Table Mini-Classic: Broadly Concise, SUPERB Pix!! 16 April 2009
By Beyond-Is-Within Also - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This whole 50-state series is exceptionally well produced, from the quality semigloss paper stock to the cute state-specific repeating motif endpaper designs.

The text is both ample and informative, but the real delight is in the many (necessarily smallish but well-chosen) gorgeously reproduced pictures!

All aspects of the state's artistic heritage and ongoing activities are represented. A solid general introduction and timeline sets the reader up to appreciate the subsequent themed sections and their appealing images within a broad historical context.

These titles make useful pocket companions and itinerary planners for state-wide art appreciation forays. You'll enjoy this one -- and want to collect the set!
