Hidden London

London Gazetteer, by Russ Willey - http://hidden-london.comA friend and former boss has channeled his encylopedic knowledge of and passion for London into two fabulous books AND a really lovely website, Hidden London. Russ has always been obsessed with London, and seems to know both every inch of its lesser known parts, as well as the obscure stories behind those places. 

I’ve bought copies of his books for lifelong London residents who are blown away by all the incredible locations they didn’t know about in the city. (These books would make perfect gifts for the Anglophile or London resident in your life.) And the photography, almost all Russ’s own handiwork, is beautiful. 

Many years and thousands of hours of work went into all this – and it shows. Dive in here – and see how long it takes you to tear yourself away.
