The London Reading List No.22 – Take 2

My copy of "This Is London" will be 50 years old on Christmas Day. In it, my dear globetrotting aunt inscribed, "Perhaps we can see this together someday." Although we never did get to explore London in each other's company, I have made seven visits so far with plans for many more. Miroslav Sasek's wonderful, whimsical illustrations did as much to inspire my childhood fascination with London as Ludwig Bemelmans' "Madeline" series did to inspire my love of Paris!

PS I thoroughly enjoyed both your Chelsea walk and your St. Paul's/London Blitz walk in 2008. Our college-age son, who was spending his semester abroad in London at the time, chalked up another dozen walks on his own!
