As portable as a map but as informative as a guide, these hybrid Bonjour city map-guides by globe-trotting filmmaker Marin Montagut offer his curated recommendations for shopping, dining, and attractions. The Bonjour pocket-sized map-guides—made of water-resistant, tear-proof paper—feature rare and soulful places that exude an enviable je ne sais quoi. From bakeries to taco trucks, bicycle rentals to antiques shops, or boutiques to toy stores, each recommendation includes a succinct anecdote, tip, or description—illustrated by Marin Montagut’s watercolor travel sketches—to tempt bon vivants everywhere.
