It’s the second and shortest month of the year and our books of the month are great ones to read to see you through the cold spell.
Our Adult Book of the Month for February is London: A Life in Maps by Peter Whitfield £14.99.
In this book, over 100 important maps from the mid-sixteenth century to the present day are illustrated and discussed (including a few of ours). This book was originally a bestseller in 2006 and has now been redesigned and updated for a new audience.
London: A Life in Maps offers a magnificent panorama of London’s history, and the lives of its people, over nearly four centuries. The devastation of the Great Fire; the emergence of the West End as a place of fashion; the opening of the Royal Parks; the building of the docks; the coming of the railway age; the impact of World Wars and urban redevelopment – all these changes are evident in historic maps.
