A World of Cities

Bring cities around the world to life with this beautiful anthology from print-maker James Brown.

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.

Our Review Panel says...

This is a true treasure of a non-fiction text! Illustrator James Brown follows on from the popular ‘A World of Information’ in a similar style; an almost-A3 sized high quality information book filled with double-page spreads in his striking print-maker style, this time with each one containing information about a different world city. The written text is cleverly integrated into the pictures (e.g. on the page about London, facts are placed seated on a bus, around the archways of the bridge and ascending Big Ben’s tower, among other places) and you get the feeling that you will discover brand new trinkets of information each time you read. An engaging, original non-fiction book that makes you want to climb into the page…
