CASE STUDY: Wildsam Field Guides
The Wildsam Field Guides are a modern series of travel books with a bygone sense of place. They move beyond the itinerary and look for genuine experiences, unplanned wonders, and collected objects that are delightful, gritty and unique to the heritage of the locale.
Adopting what Steinbeck describes as the “faraway joyous look” that accompanies curiosity, Metaleap crafted the look, feel and design of this new series of city guides, beginning with Nashville. The field guides introduce readers to locals (always the best sources) with conversations, personal essays, hand-drawn maps, surveys of city favorites, and an almanac spanning a wonderfully wide list of topics. The spirit of Wildsam is full, offbeat, and inviting—just like all great cities.
