City Guide: Take a visual journey before the actual journey

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Hong Kong-based publishing house Viction:ary has collaborated with designers and illustrators from all around the world to create their “City Guide” books’ covers. These are all bound to get you all geared up and excited – either to do some actual travelling, or embark on an online journey to discover great illustration and design pieces! The covers represent a city map, drawn in the collaborating artist’s style – which is then carried through the entire book’s design. A must-see for sure (via Fubiz)

It’s all about the package! Graphic design has so many facets that need to work together to get the job right.  Here’s a little Nicework hint on the subject of typography – one down, much more to go.
