The Lovereading4Kids comment

Bold and beautiful spreads of collage pictures capture the vibrancy of London as expressed through many aspects – not just the famous and familiar landmarks. London looks full of variety and fun in spreads of places including Hampstead Heath, Portabello Road, the Isle of Dogs as well as spreads of things London is famous for including Art, Fashion and, less gloriously, Villain!
