This follow-up to Jason Brooks’s highly successful Paris Sketchbook is a stunning gift book that brings the big smoke to life through beautiful imagery. From the West End to the Square Mile and from Liberty to hipster hang-outs, Brooks explores modern-day London through his unique visual repertoire that unites high fashion, fine art and traveller’s sketches made on the fly. Although best known for his gorgeous fashion illustrations, which feature regularly in Vogue and Elle, travel has been a recurrent theme in Brooks’s work and, with this new volume, his picturesque adventures continue to amuse and inspire. Part guide book, part illustrated journal, this whimsical take on the swinging city will appeal to both London lovers and fashionistas. Sumptuous production with different stocks and inks will make this a must for anyone who loves fashion illustration and beautiful books.
