Art & Design
With over 100 destinations under their belts, the design team at Wallpaper magazine has hit upon an ingenious formula for making their city guides a magnet for design savvy wanderers. Reduce the essence of a city to a single color, keep typography to a minimum, and then watch as esthetes snap them up, one by one, displaying them on bookshelves like so many Pantone chips. Ok, we’re sold; but we’d still like to know the reasons behind giving Rome bubble gum pink and poor old Melbourne boring tan.
