Author(s): Adam Dant
This stunning and witty collection of contemporary art maps from artist Adam Dant offers a unique view of British history and society today.
Award-winning artist Adam Dant's maps of London and beyond are beautiful, subversive, and funny. From "London Enraged," a history of rioting in the city (including protests again the Gin Act and Poll Tax), to maps of high-class coffee clubs and local slang over the centuries, Dant's illustrations illuminate English social and cultural history. Published in conjunction with the popular Spitalfields Life, this large-format volume fully reveals the charming, often-humorous details in his work. The erudite annotations and labels, plus Dant's own commentary on the inspiration for each map, make this a wonderfully browsable and entertaining collection.
