The fanciest guidebook holder ever?

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Need a fancy box for your travel guidebooks? Shanghai Tang has you covered. "Each individually numbered and engraved collector’s box is handmade in maple and ebony veneer marquetry, lined in kumquat silk satin and contains thirty fabulous LUXE City Guides." Sounds intense, as it should be since the idea is to celebrate the year of the tiger. Find it at Shanghai Tang stores around the world for $1,500. [Luxetasy]
