The National Archives: The Buildings That Made London Summary

The National Archives: The Buildings That Made London by David Long

Take an incredible journey through the streets of London and see beautiful buildings as you've never seen them before! An elegant horizon of historic masterpieces mixed with sleek modern skyscrapers, the familiar London skyline seems to change every year. Using original architectural drawings from The National Archives brought to life by stunning artwork by Josie Shenoy, discover the rich heritage of some of London's most iconic buildings. Watch Buckingham Palace transform from a large country house into an opulent palace, spot Henry VIII playing tennis on the lawn of Hampton Court Palace, and get lost in the Palm House at Kew, London's very own tropical rainforest. This beautiful book from Blue Peter Award-winning author David Long and exceptionally talented artist Josie Shenoy is a historical kaleidoscope celebrating the magnificent buildings that made London.

About David Long

David Long has been a writer since leaving university. He has worked as a columnist on the Sunday People, has created a popular weekly cartoon strip which ran in the weekend edition of the Times, and continues to write for a wide diversity of newspapers and magazines both in Britain and abroad, including The Evening Standard, Londonist, Sunday Mirror, Sunday Times, Sunday Times Magazine, Today Magazines and many more. Many of his most popular and best reviewed books reflect his longstanding interest in the less well-known aspects of London, its architecture and eccentric inhabitants - subjects, he says, which simply never run dry. David's book, Survivors: Extraordinary Tales From the Wild and Beyond (Faber and Faber) was the winner of the Best Book with Facts in the Blue Peter Awards 2017. Josie Shenoy is a London-based illustrator. Her intricate and completely beautiful illustrations combine detailed pencil drawings with decorative patterns and collage in a gorgeous palette of vintage colours and textures. Josie has produced work for The British Museum and Historic Royal Palaces. She also designs her own collections of greetings cards and art prints. The Buildings that Made London is her first book with Bloomsbury.
