A World of Cities

By James Brown
Illustrated by James Brown

Bring cities around the world to life with this beautiful anthology from print-maker James Brown.

Climb Paris's Eiffel Tower, explore Cairo's ancient pyramids, wander the busy streets of New Delhi and see the lights of Shanghai in this whirlwind tour of the world's most beautiful cities. Print-maker James Brown, the talent behind international bestseller A World of Information, has rendered each city in bold, bright colours, with fascinating facts about the history and culture incorporated into the contemporary designs. London, New York and Tokyo have never looked so stylish – or so alive.

  • The 30 cities featured are: Amsterdam, Athens, Barcelona, Beijing, Berlin, Cairo, Cape Town, Delhi, Dubai, Dublin, Hong Kong, Istanbul, Lisbon, London, New York, Mexico City, Paris, Prague, Rio de Janeiro, Rome, San Francisco, Seoul, Shanghai, St. Petersburg, Stockholm, Sydney, Tokyo, Toronto, Venice and Vienna.
  • James Brown's illustrations are stylish and contemporary, but also recall charming vintage travel posters.
  • Quirky historical and cultural facts are cleverly incorporated into the designs for each city.
