Very special travel guides from The Little Bookroom

Are you tired of the same mass-market guides that send you to places where tour operators also take their clients? Check out The Little Bookroom’s splendid travel guides which reveal secret places in Italy and France (and elsewhere) that most guide books never mention. I love the dreamy photos and illustrations, the gorgeous layout and artwork.
