David has spent a lifetime depicting with wit and affection a London he has made his own, in this book looking at some of its neglected corners. Familiar views, gorgeous landscapes you are forgetting to enjoy. He describes how he chooses techniques and materials to render the spellbound children at his grandchildren's Camden primary school; the spectacular transformation of Hendon's streets from brown to pink to green with April's cherry blossom; the strange world evoked by the city under snow. From its surprising expanse of sky to the crushed closeness of the tube, from Rainham Marshes to Hampstead Heath, David Gentleman gives us London on a human scale. There are the lively shopping areas, the touristy places, peaceful parks, boats on the river, hidden streets and sights.

Une promenade à travers Londres, qui redonne envie de flâner. Through David's eyes we see London anew as he shows us how the sun turns rubbish-strewn ditches into enchanting waterside glades, or how just twenty-two lines on paper can deliver the dazzling complexity of Canary Wharf's windows.
