Wildsam Guides

A  refreshingly minimal travel book arrived in my mail box last week. Without photography or any of the traditional guidebook devices, the pocket-sized volume weave interviews, anecdotes, personal essays and stunning design.

Petite Planète

In this series of French travel guides from the 50s the narratives were full of commentary and critique and the visuals surprising or unsettling, avoiding the glossy clichés of typical guidebooks.

Vintage Guides

love the idea of travelling with old guides. They will likely send you to long forgotten places, spots that were the epitome of hipster circa 1979, and probably on a wild goose chase or two.
