TaschenLondon, Portrait of a City: Paul Smith Art Edition
No Longer Available
Samuel Johnson famously said that: "When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life". London's remarkable history, architecture, streets, style, swagger, and stalwart residents are pictured in hundreds of compelling photographs sourced from archives around the world in this celebratory book from Taschen. In addition to the wealth of images included in this book, many previously unpublished, London's history is told through hundreds of quotations, lively essays, and references from key movies, books, and records in salute to one of the most fascinating cities in the world.
Paul Smith has designed the fabric cover for the Collector's Editions of London: Portrait of a City, and the print Piccadilly Circus was taken by photographer Elmar Ludwig.
