Synopsis

London Walks! by Badaude

London is a labyrinth of streets, a whirlpool of impressions. To appreciate it, the best method is to jump right in. This is what artist Badaude invites readers to do in London Walks !, a unique, hand-drawn guide to the city that is packed with quirky observations and out-of-the-way treasures. From crowded street markets and department stores to open-air swimming pools; through parks and city squares, in and out of museums, to the river: Badaude's intricate and charming drawings catch the bustle, the architecture, the people and the atmosphere of London as no other guide has done. Best appreciated on foot, London shares its charms with those who strike out on their own. With Badaude as your companion, we can't guarantee you won't get lost along the way, but we defy you not to enjoy the process!
