This is a PSA: Put down your e-reader! Even if you haven't touched a book since before Justin Bieber was born, you'll want to get your hands on this tome: So It Is Vancouver is a stunning coffee table book by a duo of local photographers on a mission to share fascinating stories of Vancouver's past and present. It profiles 120 Vancouverites of every background, from the city's most famous heroin junkie to a descendant of the construction worker who accidentally burned the town to the ground in 1886. And the cherry on top is that every person profiled is photographed in a quintessential Vancouver location — and soaked in water to represent the city's other name: Raincouver!
