Well it was inevitable, the co-stars and co-creators of the sweet and wacky sketch comedy show Portlandia Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen have a book deal. Grand Central Publishing, a Hachette imprint, will release PORTLANDIA: A Guide for Visitors this November. The book will be structured just like a traditional travel guidebook and will lead readers through Portland’s landmarks, sites, attractions, shops, bars, clubs and restaurants. I’m sure a string of apps will follow.
