While traditional travel guidebooks focus on where to eat, sleep, and visit (setting up the travel experience as a mere checklist of things to see and do), A Guide for the Eyes introduces, explores, and beautifully illustrates the details that create the magical sense of place that travelers seek. This visual glossary of 100 New Mexico icons is a celebratory chronicle of these natural and cultural legacies. Original photography and informative text provide insight into the significance of each topic, covering regional architecture, design, flora, fauna, food, crafts, folklore, landscape, and other facets of local identity and style.
A cultural anthropologist at heart and by trade, author Elisa Parhad is passionate about exploring place, space, design and culture. This award-winning book will bring back memories and inspire new adventures to the Land of Enchantment. A must have for all who are passionate about New Mexico.
