Hi Ronald - I think you have put your finger on some of the things I thought too - though not sure I have any very useful suggestions. The guide looks as I would conventionally expect one to be (worthy but not very exciting) - but the map cover - though a fine example of typography as design, is a bit 'unformed' somehow - and to someone like me who doesn't know the area (your target audience?), it takes longer to decipher what it covers than I might wish - especially the Lake Delhi Area: clever design, but indecipherable.

Out of interest - why don't you want to use a common design for the two? Or are you coming up with a new common design using these two as starting points?
