Karl the Fog – San Francisco’s Most Mysterious Resident 

Book Description
San Francisco, home of cable cars, the Golden Gate Bridge—and its quintessential cool gray fog. As a resident of the Silicon Valley, Karl the Fog naturally uses Twitter and Instagram accounts to document his comings and goings and the beauty of the city he loves (except for when it’s sunny). Amassing roughly half a million followers across social platforms, Karl the Fog’s witty takes on San Francisco paired with beautiful, evocative photography have earned him celebrity status in the Bay Area and beyond. Packaged in a fog-wrapped acetate jacket, Karl’s first book features more than 50 scenic selfies and entertaining observations about the city, along with details of his family’s foggy history, and a foreword by Sutro Tower.

Chronicle Books, 9781452173832, 112pp.  Publication Date: June 11, 2019
