If you've been in a bookstore or museum gift shop recently, you've probably seen the simple, colorful jackets of the Wallpaper City Guides. These small volumes are aimed at the kind of well-groomed, well-traveled people who read Wallpaper magazine and are accordingly style-oriented. This can feel a little lacking if you're into historical sights and museums, but if a gorgeous hotel room, wonderful shops and the latest architectural stunner define your travel plans these books are for you. Copenhagen, London and Istanbul and 17 other cities are given a lavish photographic treatment, while well-written text offers insightful glimpses into each city's character.
