"Description only excites curiosity: seeing satisfies it"
Boswell's Life of Johnson, 1791
Love London, Barbara Chandler's book of photographs, is published by Batsford, the old-established British publishing house; www.annovabooks.com
It is a neat little hardback, beautifully designed and bound, and small enough to slip into a bag - and it only costs £9.99. With its 180 colour and black-and-white photographs, Londoners are loving it (to keep or for a present), and tourists, too, are snapping it up at gift boutiques, museum shops, and book stores all over the capital.
Photographs are teamed with over 100 quotes about London, from 15th century poetry to a modern blog, with Shakespeare, Milton, Johnson, Dickens and many many more along the way.
