the husband and i are off to amsterdam in a couple of weeks. can. not. wait.
and on looking for trip-inspired festive gifts –
i found herb lester:
based in london – herb lester are map-makers. taking an old school approach to writing a city guide, using cab driver recommendations & general walking & finding, & with wall-worthy design style – these wee guys are a perfect travel guide, small enough for a husbands pocket even, and ONLY £4 EACH. wtf.
font, colour & layout P E R F E C T I O N. there isn’t a design i didn’t like. and you can buy them in bundles that they call collections. they even sell an ‘everywhere box’.
the website is a lovely place & the map paper is 100% recycled. WIN.
if your going somewhere get one.
& i’ll let you know how it does us in amsterdam through our no doubt bleary eyes…
