Megan McKean, Hello London!, Thames & Hudson Australia, February 2020, 32 pp., RRP $24.99 (hbk), ISBN 9781760760373
Hello, London! takes us on a leisurely stroll through London, past landmarks old and new. Our guides are six grey pigeons who are waiting to be found on every spread. Beginning at the Tower of London, we travel by tube, visit Portobello Road, see the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace, visit the Tate Modern and the British Museum and finish our journey with spotting some of London’s more unusual buildings from the banks of the Thames.
Along the way, our pigeon guides point out interesting facts and figures of the locations we are visiting.
The bold, flat illustrations are fun and inviting and everything about the hardback cover and the paper make this a beautiful book to treasure.
