A Stylish Travel Companion

 Finally, a guidebook you can carry without being embarrassed! (Well, maybe.) We got an advance copy of one of the new Wallpaper City Guides, put out by London-based Wallpaper magazine--and it's foxy. In fact, it's probably the best-designed guidebook we've seen in a while. It's small and thin, fitting nicely in a back pocket; it has handy chapter tabs; and instead of the usual lame cover photo, each city guide will have a simple color field--the effect is reminiscent of Pantone chips or paint samples. Twenty guides will be launched in October, with 40 more coming in 2007 (all published by Phaidon). There's not a lot of info inside, but the info may not be the point.
