Travel wisdom in your pocket: Get around New York, Paris, Berlin, and London in high style
 
Following the smashing success of our city travel guide series, TASCHEN brings you the entire collection in a box set of 12 volumes. Each city—Paris, New York, London, and Berlin—is covered in three separate volumes for hotels, restaurants, and shops. These guides are just as stylish as the originals, now easier to slip in your pocket while you explore!

Highlights include:
London:
Number Sixteen, a chic South Kensington hotel in a beautiful Victorian townhouse with romatic gardens, celebrity chef Jamie Oliver’s restaurant and social project, Fifteen, where teenagers cook the meals, and Dover Street Market, the multi-floor concept store founded in 2004 by Comme des Garçons.
New York: the Maritime Hotel, a former sailors’ dorm, now Chelsea’s coolest hotel, the Waverly Inn, Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter’s exclusive salon for the glitterati, and where to buy New York’s best cheesecake
Paris: Ladurée, the best macaroons in the city, the ultra-luxurious Ritz hotel on elegant Place Vendôme, and Colette fashion concept store
Berlin: hip nightspot Green Door, where one rings the doorbell to gain entrance, oriental delight at Edd’s, the best Thai restaurant in Berlin (perhaps in Germany), and experimental store Bless, "publicizing artistic values through products".
  • Berlin, London, New York, and Paris, covered in three volumes per city: Hotels, Restaurants, and Shops
  • hand-illustrated maps indicating the selected locations
  • short texts about each spot, with a list of useful info such as opening hours and prices
