Reviews

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 * It is aimed at children, but we think a lot of adults just might enjoy L is for London * Retro To Go * This is a gorgeous creation. Reminiscent of the great Miroslav Sasek in colour and style, Thurlby has put a timeless spin on his divinely-rendered illustrations, in a book that showcases the inner workings of the great city of London * Kids Book Review * Wonderful retro-style illustrations * Junior Hipster * Iconic and utterly stylish * Picture Books Blogger * Delivered with tremendous panache * Red Reading Hub * stylish....bold pictures of contemporary metropolitan icons * Time Out *
