2018 marks the 25th anniversary of DK Eyewitness Travel Guides and the most in-depth redesign since the series launched in 1993; based on extensive global consumer research, these beautifully practical new books have been designed with the consumer in mind.
Travel Publishing Director, Georgina Dee said “We have conducted extensive consumer research into the travel guide market, looking at what people buy, why and how. It’s great to hear that people still see the value in printed travel guides. We know that flicking through a travel guide can, for many people, be the start of their trip, the first point where they begin to get excited—what a privilege to be a part of that.”
The guidebooks have completely new photography throughout, while keeping the much-loved hand-drawn illustrations DK Eyewitness is known for. The maps are bigger and better than ever before and the interior has been reformatted so it’s even easier to inspire, plan, discover and experience.
The redesigned books launched in September with guides to Amsterdam, Berlin, Ireland, Italy, London, New York City, Paris, Prague, Rome, and Washington, DC publishing first. This new look will roll out across the publishing program with more guides publishing throughout 2019.
Here are some examples from the new guides:
