About All the Colours of London
Explore the familiar sights of London via its iconic colours in this illustrated tour of the city.
All the Colours of London is an illustrated exploration of the iconic objects that define the city, through the colours that weave through its streets and define its landmarks.
Explore London in a brand-new way, its objects cataloged into colour groupings – individually observe the components of city life and watch how they create a vibrant kaleidoscope of colour when they all come together.
From double-decker bus red and pigeon grey to Hyde Park green and Big Ben brown, London lovers can spot the whole rainbow through the pages of this book.
