Synopsis

L is for London by Paul Thurlby

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
