See the many: Colors of London

A History

by Peter Ackroyd

#ColorsofLondon #NetGalley

I have read Ackroyd’s takes on both The Canterbury Tales and King Arthur so was intrigued to see what he would have to say about London. As it turns out, not surprisingly, Ackroyd has a good deal to say. Within these pages are history and nostalgia, along with photos and other visuals that cove many years. The whole is organized by color palettes; these include Light, Fire, White, God, Blue, Green, Red, Brown, Gray, Black, The Night, and finally, The Full Spectrum.

Ackroyd notes that London is a city of light and shade, perhaps not so vibrant as Paris or New York…and yet, what a place it is. It is surely a city with a palette. Enjoy looking at the many photos or read along too and learn a lot about this renowned British metropolis. I especially enjoyed the period posters that were in many sections.

Many thanks to NetGalley and Quarto Publishing Group for this title. All opinions are my own.

I love to read, recommend books and open the world of reading to others. I tutor to ensure that the next generation of readers will know the joys of a good book because their reading skills have improved. I am an avid reader, especially of mysteries and fiction. I believe that two of the world's greatest inventions were the public library and eyeglasses!
