About Goodnight St. Louis
Whether you call it “home” for a few days, months, weeks, or years, you will find that the Gateway City truly has so much to share. St. Louis is a city of neighborhoods and neighbors, beautiful parks, and public art. It’s a venue where exciting sports teams compete and talented musicians play, and where world-class theater, fascinating museums, and cultural celebrations can be found around nearly every corner.
Goodnight St. Louis was created to bring together the very best of our city and to encourage residents and tourists alike to explore and experience the city firsthand, as well as through the pages of the book. Considered by many as the only guidebook you need for St. Louis, it has been used as everything from a city map to a childhood memory book. It’s a showcase of the features that make St. Louis unique, exciting, and most importantly, home.
Goodnight St. Louis adorns the bookshelves and coffee tables of over 50,000 fans and readers worldwide. With copies sent everywhere from Alton to Australia, from South County to South Africa, Goodnight St. Louis can be found in the homes of those who love and celebrate St. Louis, no matter where in the world they dwell.
Each illustration of Goodnight St. Louis was lovingly hand-drawn by local muralist Karen Heyse, who brings fun and whimsy to the depictions of our town’s most beloved locales. The artwork of Goodnight St. Louis can be found on postcards and notecards, which are available for purchase both online and through our local retailers. Additionally, our prints, limited edition ornaments, and ceramic plates and mugs are available through a variety of our local retailers. The book, as always, is available both online and in stores.
We thank you for exploring our website. It is our sincere hope that whether you are a local or a visitor, young or young at heart, that you cherish St. Louis and all the things that make our city home.
Goodnight St. Louis!
