Title: A World of Cities
Written and illustrated by James Brown
Published by Walker Studio, Walker Books Australia
RRP: $29.99

This large format picture book is absolutely amazing, covering thirty cities from around the world. Each double page spread is displayed in portrait layout, with the reader turning the book to view. Entries include quotes about the city, facts, statistics, historical information and landmarks. The illustrative technique is poster art, using just a few colours per city.

This is a remarkable book that demands many hours of reading and viewing. It is for all ages and would make the perfect coffee table book to dip in and out of at whim. Highly recommended for all.

Many thank to Walker Books for supplying this book for review.
