Do you know the middle of the world? Roger Ycaza lives nearby. Quito is the capital of Ecuador. A city planted between volcanoes, ravines, lagoons and mountain ranges. Get lost in the Plaza del Teatro, contemplate the Basilica del Voto Nacional, enter the bookstore of the Centro Cultural Carlos Fuentes or let yourself be guided by the hot vapors of the national gastronomy until you reach the Parque de la Vicentina. In this map of shivering taste buds, there are options for all appetites. A mouthwatering pastry, a table of Cantonese dishes, a family grocery store where fruits and vegetables are picked or even a hot drink waiting to warm your spirits. During the night, the heat increases with live music on the stages of the Ananké bar, the International Festival of Independent Music and the Museum of Rock Ecuador. These twelve spaces invite you to know intimately the illustrator and musician of this city.
This is the new title from the collection My City, which presents cities across the world to unfold and discover through the eyes of illustrators who were born or live there. Each book comprises a fold-out map and 12 places described and illustrated in a every personal way by the artists.
