London at Dawn presents a view of the city that is rarely seen. Anthony Epes photographed the capital during the tranquil hours of dawn, before the chaos of the working day, and deftly captured the spirit and beauty of one of the most exciting cities in the world. Complementing these images, writers and famous figures throughout history have provided their musings on the city they love. From Samuel Johnson to Ian McEwan, William Shakespeare to Peter Ackryod, they offer a unique homage to London at the beginning of the millennium. Foreword by Peter Ackroyd.
