Format: Hardcover
This is a beautiful book that you will want to read and re-read.

It chronicles London past and present, starting with the Beatles on Abbey Road and the statue of Achilles in Hyde Park and ending with a Zebra and the Giraffe House in London Zoo.

Each letter of the alphabet has a double page spread, with a beautifully textured colour character and three or four black and white linocut illustrations on the left hand page, and colour linocut of a London landmark on the right hand page.

It includes all aspects of London life - from the Globe Theatre to the Shard.

I thoroughly recommend it for anyone who loves London.

This is the most beautifully presented book, a must have for any London enthuses, print maker, illustrator,etc. Superb images showing every aspect of this great city. I bought it for my husband to add to his London collection of books, but share it with my daughter who loves finding the places she has visited in it. As a teacher I also think it's a really good stimulating teaching aid quirky and old fashioned but very upto date, highly recommended!

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Christopher Brown has drawn on his childhood memories in linocuts to introduce the reader to his London. In the style of Edward Bawden, whom the author studied under, the nostalgic images and colour palette are yet up to date and provide a packfilled picture book to explore one of the most cultural and historic cities in the world. A delightful book laced with humour and history. A must for any anglophile and certainly for any printmaker.
