An Alphabet of London

From Abbey Road, Achilles and Albert to, Zeppelin, Zhiming and Zimbabwe House

An alphabet of London is a quirky new book taking us on an alphabet tour of London by way of lino cuts created by artist Christopher Brown. Not only do we see the London he grew up in and loves so dearly with his whimsical prints, he also takes us step by step through the process of his craft.

A perfect gift available from Merrell Publishers.

When Achilles was erected the area opposite in Mayfair was somewhat down at heel. Prostitutes flourished and they gathered at the stature remarking upon his stature, questioning why certain bits of his 'stature' did not appear to match. A fig leaf was later added to cause this to cease! I never noticed myself.

It's an interesting way to showcase his city and his craft all rolled into one.

Hi Mo - No I haven't moved to Jersey - I was there for a week in October 2010 - took over 250 photographs - originally published on the Geograph CI site (see the copyright notice) - now given some another airing on Jersey Photos.
