About the Brand
City Map/Guides from Herb Lester Associates are an eclectic selection of quirky titles designed to illuminate particular aspects of a city or a district.
Each title lists publishers’ recommendations, ranging from the already famous attractions to little gems known only to the well informed locals, all with brief descriptions and, where appropriate, contact details.
Accompanying maps are designed to highlight the locations of the recommended places rather than to provide an accurate presentation of the street network.
