Our Detroit Neighborhood Guidebook, edited by How to Live in Detroit Without Being a Jackass author Aaron Foley, is heading to the printer, and is due to hit bookstore shelves and the online retailers of your choice in August.
But! Preorder the book from Belt today and you’ll not only be the first on your block to get your copy, it will come with a sweet bonus: a hand-drawn map of Detroit by Alex B. Hill.
A geographer and anthropologist who’s also currently working on mapping food access in Detroit, Hill is part of a group of cartographers redefining visual representations of the city. The banner at the bottom of the map he’s created for Belt reads “The Unknown is not Empty.” If there’s a better summation of our publishing program — and our driving philosophy — we haven’t seen it yet.
