Publisher Thames & Hudson is launching two further Style City titles this weekend, for New York and Barcelona, both designed by Grade Design. Creative director Peter Dawson and designer Tom Green worked closely with Thames & Hudson associate director Lucas Dietrich on the project, and location photography is by Anthony Webb and Ingrid Rasmussen. Each guide highlights ‘the best and coolest’ the city can offer ‘the design-conscious traveller’, says Dawson. A forthcoming StyleCity guide to Amsterdam is almost complete, and work has just started on the next city, San Francisco, he adds.
