The well-traveled bookshelf…September 23, 2009
Is anyone else out there mildly obsessed with Wallpaper City Guides? I have a few sitting handsomely on my bookshelf and am ecstatic to have an excuse to buy the “Buenos Aires” edition. Beyond their interesting write ups, the design of the teeny books themselves is just so retro chic. As described by Phaidon, the City Guides “present a tightly edited, discretely packaged list of all the best a location has to offer the design-conscious traveler.” Part to me is dying to splurge on a guide for each city I’ve visited (to amass a personal collection of sorts…), but that would be rather costly. For the time being I’ll just have to buy as I go… Buenos Aires, you’re up next!
