Offering an insight to the inner workings of Melbourne's design community, the new Melbourne Design Guide pulls together the knowhow of dozens of movers and shakers from all areas of design. Full of hand-drawn maps and walking itineraries, the Guide is a direct connection to the pulse of this inspired city. It will tell you all there is to know about architecture, fashion, art, graphics, objects and, of course, the stores, galleries, bars and restaurants Melbourne's creative community embraces and frequents. The 2009/2010 edition, for the first time, features two parts. The first part helps readers find and explore design-oriented destinations. The second part introduces the design talent that often works away behind closed doors.
