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, spanning 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.
Melbourne Mid-Century showcases examples of Melbourne's 'International Style' displaying the clean, unadorned design espoused by the Swiss modernist Le Corbusier and his contemporaries at the Bauhaus school.
