Our friends from Cereal expanded their publication to include the Cereal City Guides - a beautifully curated collection of guidebooks, featuring New York, London and the “City of Lights”, Paris. Their decision to launch a series of physical guidebooks feels all too natural to us: Cereal magazine – their stunning flagship publication – is a biannual style and travel magazine. Founded by Rosa Park and Rich Stapleton in 2012, the publication is divided into city-specific chapters, with each section comprising stories in places, people and products.
What makes these city guides so beautiful is not only their clean aesthetic, refined tone-of-voice or striking photography, but the fact that Rosa and Rich have researched, visited, photographed, edited and designed all of the content themselves. In this way, these guidebooks are a reflection of their very personal choices in hotels, cafes, restaurants, shops and places to see.
'If the food is top notch, so too is the space that accompanies it. You’ll soon notice that our version of the perfect trip is woven in with an understated flair and a penchant for grand landscapes – both natural and manmade.'
Each guide features a tightly edited and discerning selection of their favourite places, alongside a stunning photo essay of the city and personal essays of some truly inspiring people who call these cities their home. Most importantly, the guides are created to befit Cereal’s readers and modern travellers alike: What you will not find is a list of 30+ different restaurants to choose from, but those 5 or 6 carefully selected recommendations that Rosa and Rich believe to be unique, interesting and enjoyable. 24 select venues on 128 pages. Printed in full colour on uncoated paper. £8.
