There is always something new to discover about London. Just ask Matthew Weinreb, an architectural photographer par excellence who has lived there all his life. Better yet, tag along with him as he rediscovers his birthplace in this homage to one of the most exciting cities in the world. Weinreb's stunning color images--accompanied by his father Ben's commentary--include sculpted stone angels, intricately crafted wrought-iron gates, medieval stained glass, neoclassical doors, a bull's eye window at King's Cross Underground, the clock tower of the Royal College of Music, and the decorative Tudor brick chimneys of Hampton Court. Not to mention the magnificent terra cotta architecture of the Natural History Museum in South Kensington.
