London: Global City of Commerce and Culture (Hardback)

£19.99
Usually despatched within 2 days.

Synopsis

When you think of London, what do you see? The Houses of Parliament? The bustle around Piccadilly Circus? Elegant Victorian streets and squares? The Tate Modern? Or even Camden Market? With London, there are so many different aspects to the city.

In more than 200 striking images, London celebrates the British capital, from its famous landmarks to atmospheric alleyways, from the top of the Shard to London Underground's lost ghost stations, from the parks to the canals to the Thames. Exploring both the history and modernity of the city, the book reveals the city's legacy as a capital and a trading hub, but also looks at how the contemporary city lives and breathes as a multi-ethnic metropolis.

Presented in a landscape format and with captions explaining the story behind each entry, London is a stunning collection of images celebrating the world's most interesting city.

Alastair Horne has been a regular visitor to Paris since his first trip back in 1997 as a callow twenty-five year old, when he spent more than an hour searching for the Bastille before remembering precisely why it was famous. In recent years he has made annual visits to the city to explore its many sights: its museums, galleries and, most of all, its magnificent cemeteries. After working for more than a decade at Cambridge University Press, he is now undertaking doctoral research at the British Library and Bath Spa University, exploring how mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets are changing the relationship between author, text, and reader. He is also a journalist, speaker, and lecturer specialising in the publishing industry, and is currently writing a novel set in an unnamed Parisian cemetery in the early twentieth century.
