See San Francisco: Through The Lens of SFGirlbyBay from Chronicle Books

About Chronicle Books

Originally affiliated with the San Francisco Chronicle newspaper, Chronicle Books was founded in 1967 with one single employee. Now an independent company with over 200 employees, Chronicle Books produces over 330 books a year. Their book categories range from lifestyle, art, children’s, pop culture and food and drink. 

Chronicle Books’ mission: “Inspired by the enduring magic and importance of books, our objective is to create and distribute exceptional publishing that’s instantly recognizable for its spirit, creativity, and value. This objective also informs our business relationships and endeavors, be they with customers, authors, vendors, or colleagues.”

Product

The beauty, eclectic culture, richness and all that San Francisco entails is captured artistically in photographer, Victoria Smith’s tribute to her favorite city, See San Francisco. Smith remembers her summer road trips with her parents in the 60s when she was just a little girl. They would wake at the crack of dawn and travel from Los Angeles to San Francisco, where she was captivated at her very first glance of the Golden Gate Bridge. 

In 1994, Smith journeyed from her home in LA to a new adventure in San Francisco. She knew no one there, but never felt more at home. She began writing her now super popular interior design and lifestyle blog, SF Girl by Bay, where she chronicles her life in San Francisco in writing and photographs.

You won’t find popular landmarks in See San Francisco. Smith takes you on a true insider’s tour of this beautiful city, expressively writing about each place she photographs. 

“San Francisco has a way of helping people make their dreams come true. I suppose that’s part of why I love sharing the city so much. Anything goes here, without judgment. It’s a progressive but sentimental city that welcomes the creative and eccentric with open arms, no matter what drummer they may march to. Rebels, dreamers, and bohemians seeking an authentic and exciting life have been arriving in San Francisco since the Gold Rush of 1849 and the heyday of Haight-Ashbury. And they’re still arriving.” – Victoria Smith

Features You Will LOVE

  • 160 pages of beautiful photos, captions and tales from author’s perspective
  • Photographs by popular blogger, Victoria Smith from SF Girl by Bay
