Marcos Farina walks us through the sights and sounds of London with funky retro-postcard-style flair. Unusual geometric graphics keep the eye feasting on the information as the book explores architectural highlights, amusements, and points of interest. The reader gets a hefty dose of history delivered in bite size chunks so as to not overwhelm. The West End, the Tower of London, Hyde Park and so much more, are folded in gently, making this a wonderful way to teach an overview of the city or explain an upcoming London trip to a child. Welcome to London makes a formidable reference guide, calling out specifics like the types of trees in Hyde Park or a directory of London Bridges without clutter or complication. Full of surprises and unusual twists, it makes for endless exploration! Cheers!
