Crowdfunded Tour Books Help Travelers Discover City Secrets

The Architectour Guide aims to help tourists choose the best iconic spots to visit in a given city

Designed for travelers who long to uncover a city’s hidden archways and unspoiled paths, Architectour Guide is a crowdfunded, painstakingly-designed hardcover collection of city guides with one particularly unique feature: they contain no photos.

Instead, each book contains a hand-drawn sketch of the city it profiles, as to not ruin the reader’s true first impression of the location. The project’s mission is to inspire would-be armchair travelers to visit and breathe life into the places they read about, so that great architecture can continue to inspire the designers and architects of the future.

The guides include well-known landmarks, but they focus more on the hidden treasures of each city. So far, the creators plan to release books for London, Paris and New York. The first guides are set to be delivered in August.
