New Mexico: A Guide for the Eyes
by Elisa Parhad

As one of the most unique and colorful regions of North America, New Mexico is the first subject of the Guides for the Eyes series. 

New Mexico: A Guide for the Eyes takes the elements you see in the New Mexican landscape and explains their significance, origin and history. One hundred topics, including adobe architecture, low riders, aliens, turquoise, tumbleweeds, and red and green chile, are explored with a short and engaging cultural history. A visual stunner, each write-up is paired with original photography. The back of the book lists must see places to stay, eat and visit. 

“Like an anthropologist that you can slip into your carry-on, New Mexico: A Guide for the Eyes helps you peek beneath the exotic veneer of the state's traditions, folklore, and cuisine to gain an understanding of the culture underneath. Even Land of Enchantment locals (like myself) will discover things that they never knew.” 
—Alexander Vidal, Illustrator 

“Like a secret decoder ring for the state—Parhad's approach is a genius way of sharing New Mexico's unique culture. No guidebook (not even mine) is both so focused and so informed.” 
—Zora O’Neill, Author of Moon New Mexico
