Description


Samuel Johnson famously said that: "When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life." London is a vast sprawling metropolis, constantly evolving and growing, yet throughout its complex past and shifting present, the humor, unique character, and bulldog spirit of the people have stayed constant. This book salutes all those Londoners, their city, and its history.

From Victorian London to the Swinging '60s; from the Battle of Britain to punk; from the Festival of Britain to the 2012 Olympics; from the foggy cobbled streets to the architectural masterpieces of the millennium; from rough pubs to private drinking clubs; from royal weddings to raves, from the charm of the East End to the wonders of the Westminster; from Chelsea girls to Hoxton hipsters; from the power to glory: in page after page of stunning photographs London gets the photographic tribute it deserves.About the series: Each compact and dynamic volume in TASCHEN's Piccolo City series distills the vitality and history of each metropolis into a billet doux packed with 150 photos, informative captions and inspiring quotations.
