San Francisco Mosaic

Lillian Sizemore’s
A GUIDE TO MOSAIC SITES: SAN FRANCISCO

Since moving to San Francisco in 1997 I have witnessed an explosion of popularity for mosaics. The idea for a guide with maps seemed a natural solution in order to share the fantastic artistic resource the city has to offer. Up to now, mosaics have been a hidden and usually overlooked part of in the San Francisco landscape. This pocket-sized guide locates the most dazzling examples and puts them at your fingertips.  It is a perfect entrée into one of the most creative and cultural cities in America. Think ‘Zagat Guide’ for mosaic sites.

The guide features:

36 full-color pages
11 detailed maps organized by neighborhood
Over 40 color photographs
57 different site locations
Informative and educational descriptions
Historical and technical notes
Resources and glossary

This is the first compendium to focus exclusively on publicly accessible mosaic sites and is a must-have for anyone who wants a fresh, creative perspective to touring around San Francisco. It’s a perfect way to discover a part of the city that most of its residents don’t even know exist.
