Books about London

Having come across Spitalfield’s Life recently and many interesting features on the Gentle Author’s Blog, we noticed a trend in our Tinsmiths’ book selection. Now, whether a result of living in rural Herefordshire or simply a fasci

nation for the built environment, there are a growing number of books on “our shelves” relating to cities and particularly to London itself.

Edward Bawden’s “London,  Sasek’s “This is London”, Herb Lester’s “London Guides” and Gwen Lee’s “Endless London” are all beautifully illustrated editions. When you have exhausted these, there is Piero Ventura’s Book of Cities taking you further afield!
