Synopsis

'The most ingenious, informative, inimitable,individual, innovative, insightful, inspiring, instructive, intelligible,intoxicating, intricate, and simply interesting guide to the great city that I have ever seen. Bravo!' - Philip Pullman 'An endlessly fascinating guide to London ... an eccentric lexical juggernaut ... I doubt that anything of such crazy magnitude will be attempted again in a hurry' - Evening Standard'The greatest book about London published in modern times ... an illuminated manuscript for the 21st century city' - Londonist 'However well you think you know London, you will discover something new on virtually every page, and the things you know well will be seen completely differently. Highly recommended' - The London SocietyCuriocity is a new A to Z exploring every aspect of life in London. Its 26 chapters weave together the city's stories with striking reflections, practical ideas and itineraries, and contributions from London voices such as Monica Ali and Iain Sinclair. The book is illustrated by artists including Chris Riddell, Isabel Greenberg and Steven Appleby, and at the heart of each chapter is an original hand-drawn map, charting everything from the city's international communities, underground spaces and children's dreams, to its unrealised plans, erogenous zones and dystopian futures. Curiocity is a unique guide that will transform the way you see and experience London.

Henry Eliot and Matt Lloyd-Rose are old friends and Curiocity is their first book. Henry likes mazes, maps and literature. He leads cheese walks through the City and has lectured on Geoffrey Chaucer on the London Eye. Matt Lloyd-Rose has been a primary teacher, police officer and social researcher in London. He wrote this book while living in Buenos Aires.
