From the Inside Flap
The imagined city of Elgin Park, a magically realistic evocation of a midcentury American town, has captured the hearts of millions of web visitors and now appears in book form. You won't find the town of Elgin Park on a map, but you will find it all over the web and in the media. Called an Internet phenomenon by the New York Times, Michael Paul Smith's Flickr site has received over 20 million hits since he first posted his convincing yet dreamlike photographs of an imaginary town, inspired by the small Pennsylvania one he grew up in.

The photographer is superb and so are the micro-worlds he creates.
The converging talents of an exquisite craftsman and talented photographer.
If you are a scale modeler, a photographer of just like the golden decades of the 40s and 50s, this is for you.
The introductory text is lively and tells the story of this unique man, without being at all tedious. A totally delightful book.
