While no one wants to be the stereotypical tourist (we hope), a bit of direction is sometimes needed to fully experience a foreign city. With help from Phaidon, Wallpaper* introduce a set of hardcover City Guides focused on some of the world’s most sought-after destinations including Paris, New York, Tokyo and Copenhagen. We think it’s important to experience the “real” part of any given place, not the stuff that ends up on the front of postcards. Make sure to pack the book in your carry-on for suggestions on amazing dining, architecture, design, and more, as well as beautiful images of cityscapes you’ll want to imitate. Find the series at The Line.
