Herb Lester's new Brooklyn map.

I'm a big, big fan of Herb Lester Associates' designy little maps. This isn't the strongest of them – I prefer their more nostalgic designs – but I still have to give this one some love because it's Herb Lester AND Brooklyn.

Brooklyn is home to some of the city's tastiest food and most interesting shops, it has wonderful old family-run businesses and exciting new enterprises, but its geographical vastness can make it daunting to visitors.

This guide offers 41 reasons to visit including Bamonte's, a family-run, fourth generation Italian restaurant; the Peter Pan Donut & Pastry Shop; The City Reliquary, an idiosyncratic museum of New York; the thrills and spills of Coney Island; and pelmeni in Brighton Beach. And that's just five of them.

The map is designed and illustrated by Two Arms Inc of Brooklyn, NY. It is A3 (297x420mm) folded to A6 (105x148mm), and litho printed in England on 100 per cent recycled paper.
