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

Reviews

stylish...bold pictures of contemporary metropolitan icons Time Out Delivered with tremendous panache Red Reading Hub Iconic and utterly stylish Picture Books Blogger Wonderful retro-style illustrations Junior Hipster 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 It is aimed at children, but we think a lot of adults just might enjoy L is for London Retro To Go 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 ... With a sophistication of imagery that will also appeal way beyond that

to Art and Design students in secondary for example. School Librarian
