An imaginative roadmap that uses funky and fabulous bathrooms as a navigational tool for exploring Portland, Oregon, this book will resonate with people who are intrigued by the city's culture, who are travel curious, have an eye for creative spaces, and, of course, bathroom connoisseurs. The beauty and uniqueness of the city is in its details. Portland captivates people's attention and is seen as a gloriously groovy, somewhat gritty, and visually and environmentally green. By exploring and exposing Portland's porcelain, the author has created a unique resource that uncovers the overlooked stories, details, and hard work that brings life and a personality into these establishments. The photos, the title, and the shoes all draw the reader in, and as they read the content they are exposed to multiple layers within these establishments that connects the reader with the people, the history, the humor, and the unseen story that is embedded within the walls and makes these establishments come alive.
