Book Description

7 July 2011
'When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life' Samuel Johnson (Dead) London. England's capital of culture, finance, fashion and forward thinking. A city where the ancient meets the modern, the chic and, let's be honest, the shit. Despite the best efforts to smarten up the city before the 2012 Olympics, local pockets of immeasurable crumminess still abound in neighbourhoods and boroughs. Hidden behind the architectural delights, history and bright lights exists a world that proves London is a world class provider of bad taste and all-round awfulness. Shit London explores the world of ill-conceived community art, poorly named shops, cheeky graffiti, bad translations, comical signs and the unintentionally funny scenes that surround Londoners everyday. Revel in the rubbish that surrounds them all. You never know, it might make you feel better about where you live.

5.0 out of 5 stars Capturing London at its cruddy best 16 July 2011
By S. Hall
This is a really brilliant book, with some fantastically funny photos.

From the opening image of the massive graffiti wall that simply reads 'TRAIN WANKERS', I knew that this book would appeal to my base and juvenile sense of humour. Some of the photos are genuinely witty even artistic, but for me it's all about the knob graffiti, bizarrely named shops and abusive notices.

Enjoy it for what it is; a collection of hilarious photos that make you laugh... a lot!

5.0 out of 5 stars a must for any londoner 21 Mar 2013
By Nat
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This a great book any young Londoner should own.
So many pages of things that look all too familiar.

There is a never a moment that opening this book doesn't bring a smile to my face.

Great idea and can't wait to see the rest of the series.
