The Gentle Authors London Album 2013-cover

The Gentle Author's London Album is a beautifully bound love memo to London life in all its ebullience. The book is subtitled 'London seen from an easterly direction' which is apt, since many of the photographs first appeared on the author's informative Spitalfields Life blog, where he chronicles East London life on a daily basis. Inside you can expect to find a plethora of stories that celebrate the lesser known inhabitants of London, all of whom contribute to the wonderful diversity of this city.
