We’re super proud of our sister site, Slow Travel Berlin, which has just published its third book: a large format, 208-page full colour anthology of roughly 30 best articles that have appeared on the site since its inception in 2010 – “re-edited, re-photographed and re-designed – along with several newly commissioned pieces and exclusive photo-essays.”

The articles cover a wide-range of Berlin’s social and cultural life, from 18th Century salonnières to 20th century post-punks, neglected urban districts to contemporary street photography, Stories from the City captures the allure and fascination of a city that offers endless rewards to those willing to explore it.
