Client: Topoguide | July 2023 | https://eshop.topoguide.gr/product/lykaio/

The Arcadian Paths and Apollo Trails on Mount Lykaion, the sacred mountain of the Arcadians is a book that bridges the gap between printed and digital media. Like its predecessors Mainalos - 70 Routes and Olympus - 60 Routes, this books chapters are linked with webpages via QR codes. This relationship allows the book to offer a deeper experience with updated information,  additional resources and supplementary material.

A guided tour through deep Arcadia, exploring the cities and sanctuaries of ancient Parrhasia, the nature and trails of Mount Lykaion, the alleyways of Karytaina and Andritsaina, the cobblestone streets of villages, the springs, fields, and chapels.

Working closely with author Triantafyllos Adamakopoulos, our team highlighted the featured routes by including short descriptions, maps, photos, and new images showcasing the unique nature and historical monuments, museums, and surrounding countryside.

The design team's challenge was to create simple and easily recognizable marks and signs so that readers can easily navigate not only the unique routes but also the extended information about the local geography, geology, vegetation, flora, fauna, monuments, villages, monasteries, churches, and more. Overall, the guide is a comprehensive and visually stunning guide to the natural and cultural wonders of Lykaio Oros.
