Wallpaper City Guides - Phaidon [$9.95]

For those too-cool-for-school travelers who wouldn't be caught dead in public with a guidebook or a map, Phaidon has the solution to save such poor souls from wandering aimlessly not knowing where to visit or what to do. The slim Wallpaper guides look like a classy old paperback fiction novel and are thin enough to fit in a small pocket. Focusing on the essentials for the urban traveler and targeted at hip cities like London, New York, Milan and others, this $10 volume is both a nice stocking stuffer and a handy accessory for newbies to any of the cities covered in the series.
