As St. Louis’s story continues to be written, we took a snapshot of the past handful of years the way we always have — one photo and story at a time. Typically, our Humans of St. Louis posts only get a day of playtime on social media. Yet, the stories are still relevant, timely, and enjoyed by many. So we made a book!
We decided to self-publish. We kept it local from the stories to the creative team. And we built something truly beautiful and unique of, by, and for St. Louis.
This curated hardcover 500+ page book of portraits and stories features individuals from different backgrounds, interlaces history specific to STL, and reveals contemporary social issues about life and life in this city.
