Crumpled City Guides


Designed by Emanuele Pizzolorusso for Palomar, Crumpled City Guides are exactly what you’ve always wished for while travelling. We all know there’s nothing more frustrating than a.) being lost and b.) struggling with bits and pieces of what was once a foldout map. And you know the second you haul out your map, it’s going to start pouring with rain. Well, with Crumpled City Guides, you won’t have to worry about any of these irritations. Not only are these maps 100% waterproof and extremely light (21g), you can squash and crush them as much as you want. According to Crumpled City, ‘The more battered they are, the better they look.’ The maps also include ‘SoulSights’, 10 places from each city chosen to assist you in having the best holiday possible. Complete with a handy little bag, the Crumpled City Guides are a must for your next trip, whether it be to Cape Town, New York, London, Paris or Tokyo. Now available in South Africa and retailing at R149 each, you can find Crumpled City Guides for over 40 world cities at CNA@airports, Cape Union Mart Travel and Expedition stores, selected travel and hotel boutiques and online via takealot.com.
