Summary

Take a tour of London from A to Z, searching for giant letters hidden throughout the city. This architectural treasure hunt winds its way past London's landmark buildings and architectural gems, such as the British Museum, the Barbican, and the modernist Brunswick Centre. Letters also appear in the skyscrapers, on tube stations, and in the detailing of windows and facades. Printed in a colorful and bold graphic style, and accompanied by quirky facts about the buildings and their design, this book is perfect for all architecture and design fans. Plus, the book includes a map to follow the hunt, and the jacket folds out into an A–Z poster to hang on the wall!
