"Looking Up in Edinburgh" is a photographic guide to what is usually an ignored aspect of the urban landscape: the surprising, witty and often hidden architectural features above eye-level. It is an interactive book, which combines a treasure hunt with a travel guide. The introduction gives a light-hearted potted history of Edinburgh. Following this, the book presents a host of architectural gems each covered by an original full-colour photograph, brief quirky anecdotes about its story, cryptic clues to its location, and historical information about the building in the photograph or the immediate area. All buildings are presented on easy to follow maps, making this book ideal as a walking guide or treasure hunt. This is the first book to introduce readers to a fascinating dimension of Edinburgh's townscape that they might otherwise never have seen.It offers a compendium of stunning photographs and fascinating facts relating to one of the world's most beautiful cities (which welcomes over 4 million visitors each year!).
