Customer Reviews

This book is beautiful, and I'm so glad it sits gracing my coffee table.

What's been said about London that hasn't already been said before? Quite a lot as it happens, if you have the good sense to buy the latest installment in Taschen's Portrait of a City series. This book says everything that London is, that London was, and that London might be. This brilliant bundle of photographs are all devastating in their beauty and superior in their quality of reproduction (sharp double-page images from the Victorian era - remarkable!). The range of images coming from both small archives probably found in a library basement, to well known photographers, has been assiduously collected and curated. Positively cheaper than an airline ticket, this book will transport you across the pond and into that swinging city!

This book is beautiful, and I'm so glad it sits gracing my coffee table. Taschen has done it again, producing yet another gorgeous compilation featuring a fantastic range of photos from London. From one end of the city to the other, and across different eras, this book continues to educate and inspire me. The quality of production is also exquisite. A must have for anyone who describes themselves as a lover of photography, travel, London, and more.

We just received this book. It is a heavy, quality coffee table book. Amazing photographs vintage to new - high quality paper, spine, beautiful cover. This is truly a work of art - we love London and lived there on/off for many years. This book reminds us what an amazing city London is. A terrific, well priced gift for anyone who loves this city. I am going to purchase 2 more for friends who traveled to London for their first time this summer and vow to visit again. A GREAT book on this city!

This is a wonderful pictorial history of London. Photos from years back are so interesting to look at. An added bonus is that the photo descriptions are in three different languages. I first saw the book on display in Pottery Barn and thumbed through it but soon put it down when the clerk told me it was $79.99. Imagine my delight to find it so my more affordable on Amazon.
