- Book: London Buildings Colouring Book
- Location: London
- Author: Hannah Dipper, Robin Farquhar
This colouring book introduces then colourist to both familiar and unfamiliar architectural landmarks dotted around London, a variety of both older and more modern buildings. To my delight there is Dulwich Picture Gallery situated between the Thames Barrier and the Hayward Gallery. Hop up to North London and you find Lubetkin – his clean lines are ideal for this book… Denys Lasdun, Richard Rogers and so many more who have made their mark on the city, right out to Greenwich. Tube stations, Butler’s Wharf, and the iconic Battersea Power Station (designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott in 1935/55) and many more to surprise and astound.
What makes this a particularly good book for colouring is the clarity of line, and the rich variety of architectural styles, both suburban and central, which makes this for a very enjoyable tour of London.
At the back are details on how to find each building…. a nice touch.
