Product Description



'Drop heavy hints to Santa about London: The Photographic Atlas… a sublime book … an amazing labour of love' The Guardian

'Warning – don't buy this book! You will spend hours and hours, if not days and weeks, poring over its amazing detail. For lovers of London it is a must' Ken Livingstone, Mayor of London

'A fascinating book… it contains all the passion of a great city… fun for all the family' Rowan Moore, Evening Standard

From the Back Cover

If you live in Glasgow, you will already possess a personal stake in this book – within its pages you will be able to find your house, perhaps locate your car parked in the street, trace your route to work, and visit some of your favourite places. On closer inspection you will spot patterns that are invisible from the ground, discover surprising links between unconnected areas, find large areas of greenery that you never knew existed, and explore new neighbourhoods for the first time. Even if you don't know the city well, you will find this book fascinating.
The photographic atlas is easy to use. The photography and the cartography share the same standard grid system, meaning you can cross-reference quickly between the two elements; both photography and cartography are 'map accurate', as the photography has been geo-corrected, a process that removes the distortions in the original aerial photography; and throughout the whole book the grid interval is 500 metres, so that distances can be accurately assessed.
GLASGOW: THE PHOTOGRAPHIC ATLAS is from the same series as EDINBURGH: THE PHOTOGRAPHIC ATLAS and LONDON: THE PHOTOGRAPHIC ATLAS, already published to great acclaim in 2000. Both titles draw on the Millennium Map, a contemporary Domesday Book destined to be a social record of the utmost historical importance.

If you've ever lived in Glasgow, this book will fascinate you. Featuringlarge aerial views of the city, accurately laid out with grid-references,you can spend hours staring at places you've lived, visited or maybe justheard of. This will definitely give you a new perspective on thecity!
This book is slightly better than the Edinburgh version, as ithas proper 'normal' map pages at the back which are surprising useful too,especially when cross-referenced with the photographic version.
