Melbourne Precincts - A Curated Guide to the City's Best Shops
Melbourne is as an eclectic city full of top-quality restaurants, stylish shops and graffiti laneways hiding doors to cocktail bars, galleries and the hippest boutiques. Divided into itineraries by suburbs, Dale Campisi's book picks out the very best of Melbourne's shopping, eating and drinking experiences for locals and tourists alike. Interviews with Melbourne locals that represent the city's creative community also highlight favourite haunts, and the extra touring and accommodation tips thrown in make this a handy guidebook, as well as being a beautiful keepsake. Dale Campisi has been contributing to books about Melbourne for over ten years, and knows the city's history as intimately as its current 'it' restaurants and bars. Dale is a publisher at Arcade Publications, which produces short stories about Melbourne's eccentric historical figures. He is a co-owner of Melbourne design and souvenir store Melbournalia and has previously edited magazines and lectured in editing and publishing at the University of Melbourne. He is a regular contributor to Explore Australia's Hide Seek series.
