Sure sure, you know about major landmarks in the cities you want to visit. You might even know about a four star restaurant or where the Westin is thanks to your handy yet pedestrian tour book. But if you're looking for the real skinny on a city, Graphic USA ($20, preorder) is a great place to turn. Graphic artists in 25 cities all over the country have written and artfully illustrated this mini guide to their hometowns. So not only do you get the tip on the best dive bar, you get a clever sketch of the usual clientele.
