Good maps and city guides can make or break a vacation. Being led astray by an outdated or uninformed travel book can ruin precious time off and make you shake your fist in the air while staying in the dump you thought was meant to be a 5 star hotel. Enter Herb Lester Associates who work with exceptional illustrators to distribute the most unique maps and guides to the world's best cities. Our favourites are the London Map Collection which bundles 6 very different London maps and experiences together or the 'When We Think of Berlin' in which they state "In this guide you can find beautiful parks, wonderful bread, elegant stationery, intoxicating drinks and excellent coffee, as well as Korean fast food chicken and the world’s only Ramones museum. It is an unlikely mixture perhaps, but it’s what we think of, when we think of Berlin." Buy these guides for your next vacation and discover the best of the city you are in while also showcasing your obvious design savvy.
