First up is the most fascinating, absorbing and altogether envy-inducing of the trio
LONDON IN DETAIL (ed. Ian Messenberg 1986)
|'Nothing new under the sun.' Faded London's 70s precursor.|
The pictures are in black and white, with about fifteen to a page and the locations given are of the most general nature (Putney SW15, Wimbledon SW19 etc.). My prized capture and a quality read. Although long out of print there are some Amazon-based dealers selling copies starting at about £5.
Second up is a book with a more specific subject in mind, the history and development of signwriting
SIGNWRITTEN ART (A. J. Lewery 1989)
|Celebrating a great folk-art|
