Sasek’s quirky illustrations capture everything from the London Buses and the Houses of Parliament to the markets and pubs.
‘And at the end of your picture of London there should
come a mention for that faithful friend, your umbrella!
Because this is London!’
The sense of humour keeps this book from being anything but dull as do Sasek’s illustrations which now have a valid retro feel to them. Sasek covers London in detail, pointing out the obvious and not so obvious, and it’s these intelligent observations which keep it interesting.
This is a great one for those who devour non fiction and enjoy discovering new places.
