Most of the guides I have looked at are illustrated with photographs rather than drawings and seem to be overloaded with text, which I’m not sure tourists would want to read while on the go. I think I want to make my guide more succinct and since I’m aiming them to be more route-based, I will want to include a clear map and a detailed drawing of each pub included on the map. I also want my guide to include a bit about the history of each pub.
I hope my guide will stand out from all the others because I am aiming for it to be more visually interesting and have a more personal feel to it. I think that the more effort I put into to the look of the guide, the less likely people will see it as just another guide to use and then discard.
