Wallpaper City Guides

I stumbled upon these guidebooks at Liberty in London and I have to say, these are great little reference books for cities around the globe. Each guidebook, which is wholly focused on one city, is slim, small and filled with great information.  Wallpaper attracts a certain demographic and their guidebooks remain faithful to them which means they are not for everyone.

If you are looking for a quick reference guide to some of the hippest shopping and the most design savvy hotels and restaurants in any given city, look no further. Wallpaper City Guides are for you! Thus far, there are guides available for sixty cities around the world. They range from Dubai, to Bangkok to Los Angeles. Each guide includes clever twists on typical guidebook topics. For instance, there is a 24 hour section and a sports section. As someone who loves design and architecture, I was especially impressed by the section in the guide entitled “Architour”. This section high-lites some of the most iconic buildings in any given city. Slightly random, but definitely important to a specific type of person.(i.e me)

Besides what’s actually in them, the best part about these guides is their price – under ten dollars. I have never been one to encourage travel by guidebook but I would recommend the Wallpaper City Guides as a jumping off point when planning your next trip.
