A History of the French in London: Liberty, Equality, Opportunity / eds. Martyn Cornick, Debra Kelly
Review Date:3 Apr 2014
What a great idea! The only wonder is why no publishing house thought of commissioning a book on the topic before. The reader’s delight starts straight from looking at the cover illustration – a ‘translation’ of Harry Beck’s celebrated London Tube Map, in which Waterloo Station becomes Gare de Napoléon.
