OTHER BLUE GUIDES SERIES

We occasionally supplement our core Blue Guides with supporting titles: we have a series of Literary Companions, Food Companions and Travel Monographs, and, although long in the tooth now, our Visible Cities books still remain sought after where still in print.  And art/shop/eat are unmatched pocket guides to a destination's ... well you can probably guess.

BLUE GUIDE LITERARY COMPANIONS

Entertaining anthologies of writing--extracts from novels, letter, diaries, poems, histories, guide books--about or set in the destination.  Lively introductions to each excerpt make them a pleasure to browse, a mine of fascinating insights to enjoy at home or to supplement a guide book on site:
