'A tour de force in the modern use of graphics' London Evening Standard

What makes London the information capital? Geographer James Cheshire and designer Oliver Uberti could tell you, but they’d rather show you. Combining data with stunning design, this book shows us the city as we’ve never seen it before – from who lives the longest to how flights stack over Heathrow, from ‘The Knowledge’ of a cabbie to the territories of London’s thirteen football tribes. The result? One hundred portraits of an old city in a very new way.
