Synopsis: 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.
