From the Back Cover:

So you think you know London? You may have to think again because there is a whole new world waiting for you if you would only look up. Giants, mythical creatures, Greek gods and cherubs are gazing down, waiting to be admired. Looking up in London will enable you to see the city as those people who scurry along the streets looking straight ahead do not. It directs readers through eleven districts of Central London, with remarkable architectural gems marked along the route. The goal is to find them, using the book as your guide. A compendium of stunning photographs and fascinating facts, it will appeal to all explorers of the city who appreciate their surroundings - visitors and residents alike.

You do not need any architectural knowledge, just some comfortable shoes. So, imagine yourself as a detective and put your best sleuthing foot forward. You are on a journey to discover the treasure trove of amazing buildings that combine to make London such an unforgettable city.

About the Author:

Jane and Helen Peyton grew up in Skipton, North Yorkshire. Jane works in factual television programme production and Helen lectures in art at colleges in Yorkshire. They are widely travelled, together and individually. They realised that buildings meant more to them than images of each other when, looking through their travel photographs, they found none of each other but dozens featuring balconies, chimneys and door frames. Looking up in London is their first professional collaboration.
