Hooray! ABC LONDON IS HERE.
I actually did a forward roll of excitement when I first had an email
about this book from Frances Lincoln (this was back in the days when I
lived and worked in my carpeted London bedroom). I spent last summer
embroiled in a paper London, lack of sleep driving me to do ridiculous
things like gilding the tops of the fence at Buckingham Palace with tiny
fragments of first class stamp, not pausing to realise that it will be
utterly impossible to discern the queen's minute gold eye peering out
from the railings.
It is WONDERFUL to see the finished book.
Here's a sneak preview of P and Q, I'll post more of the illustrations when the book is published on 7th June!
ABC London will be available in all good bookshops, especially The Book Barge, where I'll be signing books on Saturday 9th June from 2-4pm at Barton Marina, Staffordshire.
More news about other book signings, especially one in London on Sunday 10th June, coming soon!
It's also had a nice mention in the Bookseller:
This unusual alphabet picture book really caught my eye. Celebrating
London's unique, diverse culture with entries like "B for Brick Lane",
it's got a contemporary feel and lots of gift book potential.
Hope you're having a super weekend!
