About the Author

The artist behind Seattle Walk Report is a self-taught cartoonist, illustrator, and designer. After discovering a love for exploring Seattle by foot, she anonymously started the Instagram comic series Seattle Walk Report in 2017. With her keen eye for Seattle's overlooked landmarks and everyday ephemera, she captures everything that makes the Emerald City magical. Her work has appeared in Seattle magazine, the Stranger, Seattle Refined, The Evergrey, and the Seattle Review of Books, as well as on KOMO News and 107.7 The End.

Reviews

Washington State Book Award Finalist

Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association Bestselling Book

"Born from the Instagram-famous comic strip 'Seattle Walk Report, ' the book...gives a whimsical tour through Seattle's neighborhoods...With new comics and tips for how to get the most out of your urban hike, the book shows you the quirky side of Seattle and encourages you to explore the city on foot and with an open mind."
--Seattle magazine

"Once an anonymous Instagram account (Ryan has only recently revealed herself), @SeattleWalkReport began as a collection of minutiae from epic urban walks, illustrated in tidy comics that make perfect use of the social media channel's square format. Ryan's depictions of Seattle are pleasingly low-tech. As a book, [Seattle] Walk Report is just as charming...You'd have to be kind of a joy-loathing curmudgeon not to like it..."
--Seattle Times

"All you have to do to discover the treasures of Seattle is go on a walk. Seattle Walk Report's 150-plus pages of twee, guidebook-style comics create an endearing collection of the small details that make Seattle a home."
--The Stranger

"'Few people know how to take a walk, ' proclaimed noted walker Ralph Waldo Emerson. If only he'd met the creator of Seattle Walk Report, who takes meandering to a transcendental level."
--Crosscut

"Triggered by the popularity of her formerly anonymous Instagram feed of the same name, Ryan's collection of illustrated field notes maps exploratory walks through her hometown. Dutifully recording paper cup sightings alongside historic building entrances, Ryan emphasizes the pleasures of small discoveries that might go otherwise unnoticed."
--Shelf Awareness

"If you've already been following the Instagram @SeattleWalkReport, you'll want to buy the book by the same name, the self-taught cartoonist who has been documenting her strolls through Seattle with sweet black-and-white comics...Nothing goes unnoticed on Ryan's walks through 23 neighborhoods."
