In this epic volume, renowned photographer Marc Hoberman presents London in a way never seen before!
Through a visual journey of over 280 large-scale color photographs, London and its surrounds is showcased as it really is: towering landmarks fill the book’s pages, below them London’s life-blood - it’s people satiate the city’s streets. Beefeaters, Camden Town punks, bobby’s-on-the-beat, they’re all here but so are the ‘everyday’ Londoners that make up the city’s true character - tourists scrunching their mouths at tube maps, public schoolboys with disheveled uniforms/perfect hair, harried crowds on Christmas-time Oxford Street and a quick cell phone text while queuing for a red telephone box.
Complemented by dramatic double-page aerial photographs and text by award-winning author John Andrew, LONDON! is a true homage to the world’s capital and sets a new benchmark for the genre.
London! Deluxe Edition is limited to 250 copies internationally and includes a collectible limited edition signed and numbered photographic print, certificate and luxury clamshell casing.
