Guidebooks cover an ever-broadening range
of interests. Familiar and reliable names for general travel -
Fodor's, Frommer's, Michelin, and the like - thrive in updated
editions and formats, while specialty guides focus on particular
interests, destinations, recreations, or social groups. Over the
last two years, guides for travellers interested in art and architecture
have particularly improved, with dazzling graphic presentations
and sophisticated text.
