For all of you fans of the whimsical design and illustrations of this website …
It’s for sale!
Not the site, silly. The drawings. Yes, Ruben Toledo, the man behind the coffee cup (and our patron saint), has illustrated one of the most impressive sets of city guides in print.
Produced by LVMH, the bright-orange guides are retro enough to seem cool, yet up-to-date enough to be cool. The set of eight slim volumes comes packaged in a matching orange box?and they cover not only the usual cities like London and Paris but less-trodden turf like Istanbul, Seville, Strasbourg, Lisbon, and Oslo.
Not a bad addition to your rucksack. Or you might even be able to one up the concierge at the Ritz-Carlton.
