London calling: A photographic history of an ever-shifting metropolis

Samuel Johnson famously said that:  When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life.  Through its complex past and ever evolving present, from the hills of Highgate to the pop-ups of Peckham, from the curry houses of the East End to the leafy banks of the Thames, London is renowned for its humor, character, and bulldog spirit. 

Now in a popular Reader s Edition, this photographic tribute salutes the city s history, architecture, and style. It reaches from Victorian London to the Swinging 60s, from the Battle of Britain to the 2012 Olympics; calling in on the Chelsea girls and the Hoxton hipsters, the Royal Weddings and the underground raves. In addition to a wealth of images London s history is told through hundreds of quotations, lively essays, and references from key movies, books, and records.

Featured photographers include: Slim Aarons, Eve Arnold, David Bailey, Cecil Beaton, Bill Brandt, Roger Fenton, Bert Hardy, Evelyn Hofer, Frank Horvat, Nadav Kander, Roger Mayne, Linda McCartney, Don McCullin, Norman Parkinson, Martin Parr, Rankin, Lord Snowdon, William Henry Fox Talbot, Juergen Teller, Mario Testino, Wolfgang Tillmans.
