Remember Travel Guides? #moonpublications

Updated: Oct 18, 2019

It wasn't that long ago that people planned trips abroad by hitting up the bookstore and buying a travel guide to help them figure out hotels, attractions, and local tips for their destinations. Chico, CA used to be the home of Moon Publications, a leading publisher of handbooks that many consulted while working out their itineraries.


Using QuarkXpress, I laid out five of these handbooks from 1999-2000.

  • Northern California

  • Connecticut

  • Jamaica

  • Nepal

  • Wyoming


Did you ever use a Moon handbook for your travels? Where did you go?
