Description - Subterranean London by Bradley L. Garrett
Peel back the layers under a London street and you'll discover forgotten tube stations, World War II evacuation shelters, secret government bunkers, and tunnel boring machines laying new sewer, communication, and transport grids. Bradley L. Garrett has worked with explorers of subterranean London to collect an astonishing array of images documenting forbidden infiltrations into the secret bowels of the city. This book takes readers through progressively deeper levels of historical London architecture below the streets. Beautifully designed to allow for detailed viewing and featuring bespoke map illustrations by artist Stephen Walter, this unique book takes readers to locations few dare to go, and even fewer succeed in accessing. AUTHOR: Bradley L. Garrett is Researcher in Geography at the University of Oxford. He is the author of 'Explore Everything: Place-Hacking the City'. Will Self is a London-based journalist and the author of nine novels. His most recent book, 'Umbrella', was published in paperback in April 2013. Stephen Walter is an obsessive draftsman educated at the Royal College of Art. His interest in the semiotics and the phenomenon of place often finds form in hand-drawn maps. SELLING POINTS: Bradley Garrett is speaking at the Melbourne Writers' Festival the Festival of Dangerous Ideas in Sydney and the Brisbane Writers' Festival 120 illustrations
