USA – 27 Feb, 2017 – Unique locations, hidden corners and unusual objects are the focus of the ‘Only In’ Guides. Designed for independent cultural travelers, each volume reveals a European city from unusual and unsung perspectives: secret gardens, eccentric museums, unique shops, industrial relics, and unusual places of worship.
‘Only In’ Guides are already available for Berlin, Budapest, Cologne, Hamburg, London, Munich, Paris, Prague, Vienna, and Zurich. “Only in Edinburgh” is the latest addition to the series published by The Urban Explorer, with further volumes in preparation.
“My books are designed for city explorers,” says author Duncan, “for those who want to set out on their own urban expedition.” The ‘Only In’ Guides offer readers the chance to get off the beaten track and gain a real sense of discovery. “Enjoy a city’s mainstream sights by all means,” implores Duncan, “but don’t forget that the central rite of passage for travelers should be the pursuit of uniqueness.”
“In a world where places become ever more similar, it is an absolute joy to stumble on the ‘Only In’ Guides. The author brings to the series the gaze of the enquiring outsider. A refreshing alternative to the prevailing tide of uniformity favored by too many travel guides,” says Hidden Europe magazine.
‘Only In’ Guides are available in bookstores and can be ordered online. Paperback, 232–252 pages, color photos, fold-out maps, individually shrink-wrapped, US$ 22.95.
