LoveReading View on A World of Cities

In this large format picture book 30 famous cities around the globe are brought to life through beautiful illustrations and a vast miscellany of intiguing facts. Every spread is devoted to a city and within that spread are facts which will astound and surprise. Did you know for example that San Francisco had a population of less than a million whilst Shanghai had a gargantuan 24 million? It's a book that will be equally at home as a book to share with youngsters at bedtime as it is to brighten up a coffee table in the living room.


A World of Cities Synopsis

Climb Paris's Eiffel Tower, explore Cairo's ancient pyramids, wander the busy streets of New Delhi and see the lights of Shanghai in this whirlwind tour of the world's most beautiful cities. Print-maker James Brown, the talent behind international bestseller A World of Information, has rendered each city in bold, bright colours, with fascinating facts about the history and culture incorporated into the contemporary designs. London, New York and Tokyo have never looked so stylish - or so alive.
