The Spirit of Seattle
Documentary Media has just released a new history of Seattle's Space Needle, by author Knute Berger, on the 50th anniversary of the Seattle World's Fair.
Release Date: now available
Knute "Skip" Berger, author of Pugetopolis, has been "Writer in Residence" at the Space Needle while researching and working on the book.
“I find the depth of reporting fascinating—not just the quotes from people whose names carry meaning, but also the little guys whose job and attitude represent something broader than their everyday work. . . .And the photos! As you must have been told many times, they are tremendous in presentation of fact and mood.”
