Carl Goes is named after an old friend with wanderlust who died too young. Carl was an avid collector of travel guides from the 1800s, a time in which a global standard for travel books was set.
We wanted to pay tribute to our friend Carl by creating a modern-day series of books encapsulating a new type of travel, where work, play, creativity and curiosity combine. Capturing the spirit of the man Carl Goes is named after, our guides are for all the curious and creative folks on the planet. We hope Carl would be proud.
