They won't be available until October, but I have no doubt that the Phaidon books - Wallpaper magazine Wallpaper City Guides collaboration will be worth waiting for. If you're a "design conscious traveller" you'll appreciate these small guides with their quick-access chapter tabs and lush photography. Here's a list of the first 20 of the pocket-sized publications to be published in 2006; Amsterdam, Bangkok, Barcelona, Buenos Aires, Copenhagen, Istanbul, London, Los Angeles, Madrid, Mexico City, Milan, New York, Paris, Rome, Rio de Janeiro, Shanghai, Singapore, Stockholm, Sydney and Tokyo. If the city you want isn't in the list above, 40 more guides will be published in 2007. Paperback, 120 pages, well illustrated, $8.95 at Amazon. Via Budget Travel Online.
