From the Publisher
Written before the tragic bombings of 7 July,
this remarkable collection marks the return
of the eclectic and inspired literary anthology. Launching as part of the London Design Festival, From Here to Here is a unique collaboration which brings together Cyan Books, Platform for Art, London Underground staff, design students from the London College of Communication (part of University of the Arts, London), and members of the writers group 26. The project is dedicated to London and the victims of the 7/7 attacks.
From the Author
This book was written before the tragic events of 7 July 2005 when London was attacked by terrorists. From Here to Here was written as a celebration of a diverse, cosmopolitan city, a city of all races, languages and faiths. We are proud of London and saddened by the indiscriminate actions of terrorists. If parts of this book seem at all insensitive in the light of those events, we apologise.
We dedicate this book to London and the victims of the 7 July attacks.See all Product description

This is not merely unconventional; some of it is fiction and some is poetry. You certainly won't find any maps. You will definitely like some chapters more than others because they are all utterly different in so many ways that you'll imagine you're shifting into a parellel universe as you turn the page from one chapter to the next. But it will give you pause for thought and a few good reasons to visit parts of London that will never make it into a book for tourists.
B/w photographs by Jessie Simmons, some double page, complement each of the thirty-one contributions. And it's a nicely printed work too, with good wide margins in which the name of each section's stop is printed; it's a treat to the eye as well as a highly recommended read.
This unusual book is one result of a collaboration between design students and writers and the circle line. One piece of writing per station, and what writing. Each station is highly individual, some extraordinarily moving. It was written prior to the 7/7 bombings but some of the content is astonishingly prophetic. A great tube read and definite Christmas present material
