'When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life' Samuel Johnson (Dead) London. England's capital of culture, finance, fashion and forward thinking. A city where the ancient meets the modern, the chic and, let's be honest, the shit. Despite the best efforts to smarten up the city before the 2012 Olympics, local pockets of immeasurable crumminess still abound in neighbourhoods and boroughs. Hidden behind the architectural delights, history and bright lights exists a world that proves London is a world class provider of bad taste and all-round awfulness. Shit London explores the world of ill-conceived community art, poorly named shops, cheeky graffiti, bad translations, comical signs and the unintentionally funny scenes that surround Londoners everyday. Revel in the rubbish that surrounds them all. You never know, it might make you feel better about where you live.

Customer Reviews

This book made a great Christmas gift, I bought it for two people this year. It's something that everyone living in London can relate to - showing the not-so-nice parts of the city that most people don't think about. These are pictures of the things that Londoners laugh at every day and some of them are absolutely hilarious.
