Description

An incredibly stylish alphabet book - perfect for children and adults alike.

See the sights of London as never before - through the eyes of an award-winning illustrator. Paul Thurlby takes us from A for Abbey Road, through K for Kew Gardens to Z for London Zoo in this striking book.

Beautiful and covetable, this book deserves a place on every coffee table - as well as in every nursery.

Praise for Numbers: 'Stunning collection.' Guardian

'Paul Thurlby's prints are so ludicrously beautiful that I am seriously tempted to blow the budget, order the whole lot and paper a wall with them.' India Knight, journalist and author

L is for London is such fun... The artwork is incredible, and there's so much to spot. -- Steve Antony * Gurgle Magazine * The artist now lives in London, and this is his paean to the city he obviously loves ... Each alphabetic choice is perfect and highlights those touristic features that we would all choose ... Each page has little snippets of useful information too ... Invaluable for projects on London this is accessible right down to KS1 pupils ... With a sophistication of imagery this will also appeal way beyond that; to Art and Design students in secondary for example. * School Librarian * A covetable gift * Little London * Each alphabetic choice is perfect ... Each page has little snippets of useful information too ... Invaluable for projects on London, this is accessible right down to KS1 pupils, who will really enjoy spotting the little fox on each page ...
