Curiocity: In Pursuit Of London
Curiocity is a new A to Z exploring every aspect of life in London. 'The most ingenious, informative, inimitable,individual, innovative, insightful, inspiring, instructive, intelligible,intoxicating, intricate, and simply interesting guide to the great city that I have ever seen. Bravo!' - Philip Pullman
Its 26 chapters weave together the city's stories with striking reflections, practical ideas and itineraries, and contributions from London voices such as Monica Ali and Iain Sinclair. The book is illustrated by artists including Chris Riddell, Isabel Greenberg and Steven Appleby, and at the heart of each chapter is an original hand-drawn map, charting everything from the city's international communities, underground spaces and children's dreams, to its unrealised plans, erogenous zones and dystopian futures. Curiocity is a unique guide that will transform the way you see and experience London.
