Sized perfectly to fit in the pockets of Jil Sander-cloaked Urban Sophisticates everywhere, Wallpaper*’s City Guides are handy in myriad ways. Sizing up a metropolis and in search of hotels with hydro-pools? Check. Looking to finally procure those Pierre Hermès Chocolates that aunt Mathilde has been raving about? Roger that. These handy little jammers are a natural companion to the mag that’s guided many a novice into the world of dirty weekends in Dubai and a certain appreciation for Icelandic Tinned Red Cabbage. Limited to an initial 20 Global destinations (wait, no Luxembourg?), these slim tomes might seem to lack any mid-to-lowbrow suggestions that vagabonds like us would uhm, appreciate, but for that whirlwind long weekend abroad with your outrageously rich financier type buddies, these minis should do the trick.
