Wallpaper* City Guides not only suggest where to stay, eat, and drink, but what the tourist passionate about design might want to see, whether he/she has a week or 24 hours in the city. Featured are up and coming areas, landmark buildings in an 'Architour', design centres, and the best shops to buy items unique to that city. Wallpaper* City Guides present travellers with a fast-track ticket to the chosen location. The edited guides offer the best, most exciting, and the most beautiful of that particular city. As well as looking beautiful, the guides are expertly designed with function as a priority, and have tabbed sections so that readers can easily find the information they are looking for. The guides include rate and currency information, maps and a colour-coding system to help you navigate the different parts of the city. They are the ultimate combination of form and function.
'What's cool about Phaidon Press' Wallpaper City Guides is that they're small enough to fit in a purse or backpack, and colorful enough to find amidst all the other stuff crammed in there. What's even cooler is that they cut through all the regular travel-brochurese and focus on the edgiest nightclubs, restaurants, hotels, gyms, spas and stores.' Sky-Delta Airlines 'Ultra-stylish.' Time Magazine 'Attractive and well-researched.' USA Today 'While the pocket-sized guides will look very slick lined up on a shelf, they're made for travelling.' Easyjet 'Concise, informative manuals from people who've actually been there. They're refreshingly devoid of details on the nearest backpacker's hostel, too. And they look very pretty.' Esquire 'Sophisticated but simple.' The New York Times
Wallpaper* City Guides are compiled and updated by the magazine's travel experts, both by in-house editors and correspondents who actually live in the highlighted cities, providing up-to-the-minute information.
