The Footpath Guides explore the buildings that make a city like Melbourne what it is today: an eclectic mixture of eras, style and design that creates its essential character and living environment.

Footpath Guides feature clear maps, concise descriptions and accurate illustrations, showcasing notable examples from each architectural era, spannning the 1850s to the 1970s. The guides are playful, timeless and informative. Meticulously designed in the graphic style of the era, mixing vintage patterns, retro fonts, clashing colours and abstraction.

Produced as 3 separate titles each containing 90+ pages, Footpath Guides to Melbourne is a homage to the places we love, one great building at a time.
