A warning to anyone who claims that they know London…think again!
There is a whole new world waiting for us if we would only look beyond those familiar storefronts and all that corporate branding. Looking up in London is the first book to introduce us to the overlooked gems on London’s buildings above eye-level
Combining a travel guide with a treasure hunt, this is a book for London’s explorers, visitors and residents alike. A compendium of detailed colour photographs, maps and fascinating architectural and historical facts about special decorative features introduces us to a dimension of London we may otherwise never have seen.
Beautifully illustrated with colour photographs this book is the equivalent of taking a tour with a local who knows all the hidden corners and secrets that other tour guides ignore.
