    Created in collaboration between Phaidon and Wallpaper Magazine, the Wallpaper* City Guides are great travel guides for the design conscious. They were announced a few months ago, but they are finally available, and at $8.95 each, I couldn't resist grabbing Barcelona, Bangkok and Tokyo, one for each of the major destinations of my upcoming trip. While they don't have the glossy pictures, maps and charts of larger travel books from National Geographics or DK, I find that their small size and discreet cover make them perfect guides to have in your pocket while you are visiting a city. I just love the clean layout, with tabs to jump to a given section, like Landmarks, Hotels, 24 Hours, Urban Life, Architour, Shopping and Escapes. There is also a foldout city plan in the front cover, and a city map in the back, and even some blank, lined and squared pages at the end for you own notes and sketches.

    The only thing bad about this bundle is that I'm having a severe panic attack from the pressure and desire to visit each of these locations. Obviously there's nothing wrong with this set - designed beautifully, informative and sure to impress your friends with the more dog ear tags and travel wear they get.

    Brief, but full of nourishing content, these books give you the low-down on up and up of premiere cities.

    I love the super stylish Phaidon City Guides -- small & easy to use. There are approx 60 in the collection: Amsterdam to Sao Paulo. Each city comes in a distinct color. I've given mini-collections away to friends as gifts who love them -- even if it's just to display on a book shelf.
