Modern London – Illustrated architecture book
“Modern London: An illustrated tour of London’s cityscape from the 1920s to the present day” will be released on October 4th.
It took me three years to write and illustrate 144 pages of this book, but it was worth it. Having the advanced copy in my hand, it’s dream come true — it’s a book I always wanted to read, but never found.
Here’s the blurb from the back of the book:
From the art deco factories of the 1920s through to the skyscraper boom of the twenty-first century, Modern London takes you on an illustrated tour of the capital’s ever-changing landscape. Shaped variously by war, economics, population growth and design trends, the city has been moulded by some of the greatest modern architects and to this day remains a centre of building design and experimentation. Through intricate graphic illustrations and accessible entertaining text, London’s streets, structures and transport systems of the last century are brought to life.
Discover long lost treasures such as the Firestone Factory and marvel
at modern –day masterpieces like the London Aquatics centre; delight in previously vilified social housing projects such as the Balfron Tower, and discover the drama behind bold, eccentric designs like the ‘Cheesegrater’. The city’s skyline can change in an instant; Modern London invites you to sit back and survey the scene so far.
