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.


Over the years I've lost and found this book countless times, and since it is often released in four volumes, I have picked up various ones in strange places and read them in different languages.
