Summary
'Curiocity' is the most beautiful and unusual guidebook ever written about London. The authors reimagine the city in twenty-six distinct ways, one for each letter of the alphabet, considering how London might look from a child's perspective or mapping the airspace above the city. At the heart of each chapter is an original, hand-drawn map from artists including Chris Riddell and Steven Appleby, supplemented by countless London voices from Monica Ali to Philip Pullman to Shami Chakrabarti. With practical and highly-unusual itineraries, the authors explore every dimension of London, visiting nuclear bunkers, talking ATMs and Japanese Monkey Fish along the way
