This week we have compiled a collection of books that will help you plan your next romantic getaway on the eve of Valentines day. We start with the extensive collection of The Design Hotels Book with its 279 independent hotels, all exquisitely photographed. We recommend The New York Times 36 Hours in USA & Canada for those wishing to visit the Americas, with a unique local slant. Those with a soft spot for a cabin in the woods will fall in love with Rock the Shack, while being transported to all sorts of remote and wild places. Finally we recommend the whole collection of Wallpaper city guides, as they really do give a true glimpse into the cultural life of cities around the globe. We are currently loving the Vancouver guide for the unique shopping experience it offers with all of its proudly independent brands and stores.
