Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
For those who prefer their explorations of the world's great cities to focus on art and antiquities, fine food, and an occasional shopping spree, Norton has produced a serendipitous sextet, all identically formatted though written by different authors. This unique concept works beautifully: each book begins with a brief history of the host city, followed by groups of museums (by geographic area) with attendant restaurants and shopping, topped off with general information (including transportation and accommodations) and city maps. A travel-perfect size-small enough for most pockets-they still manage to describe each museum in detail, many complete with floor plans and gallery-to-gallery summaries. Open hours are provided, along with telephone numbers, transportation connections, entrance fees, guided tour information, and any other logistical details an art lover might need to know. An "On Route" section lists historical sites to see on the way to the museum, followed by maps of transportation (e.g., the London Underground) and relevant city sections. Occasional color photographs enliven the text, and the graphics are bright and clear. Highly recommended with this caveat: buy for noncirculating reference or these delightful guides will do a lot of lengthy traveling in the pockets of your patrons.-Janet Ross, formerly with Sparks Branch Lib., NV Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
