Matteo Pericoli - London Unfurled

Thursday 6th October 2011 6:30pm - 7:30pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Free Event

Whether you've spent your life in London, moved here for work, study or a fresh start, or simply cherish it as a place to visit or dream of, London Unfurled is sure to show you a new side of the city.

From an intensive 20-mile journey along the Thames, bestselling illustrator Matteo Pericoli has produced two 37-foot-long pen-and-ink drawings depicting the city's north and south banks and revealing London in all of its diversity: a dozen boroughs, nineteen bridges and hundreds of buildings, including the Houses of Parliament, Tate Modern, Battersea Power Station and Millennium Wheel.

Matteo will speak tonight at the launch of this iconic and unprecedented portrait of the city, which includes essays by Will Self and Iain Sinclair.

A reproduction of the entire drawing will also be on display in the Gallery at Foyles from Tuesday 4th Oct until Wednesday 26th October.

Venue: The Gallery at Foyles

To celebrate, here is a far from exhaustive selection of some of the beer literature that can help you better appreciate the delicate arts of brewing and drinking beer.
