London has innumerable faces, constantly evolving and growing through a complex past and shifting present, while holding on strong to its sense of humor, character, and bulldog spirit. This stunning Art Edition pays tribute to the British capital in all its glory with hundreds of photographs, many previously unpublished, alongside essays, quotations, and pop culture references.
