Public House: A Cultural and Social History of the London Pub celebrates the incredible diversity, design and culture of London’s public houses from opulent Victorian Gin Palaces and homely medieval Taverns to contemporary Micropubs and community-owned breweries. Shaped by social, aesthetic and political movements, the extraordinary story of London’s pubs tells the story of the city itself.
There are, however, certain intangible qualities to a great pub that are best experienced in person – the Farringdon edition of our Pocket London subscription series is a special edition in gold, hunter green and fluorescent orange inks, and has been written by David Knight and Cristina Monteiro, the editors of the book. Experience the pubs of Farringdon in person with this perfectly paired edition of Pocket London.
To complete this bundle we've added our tour of London's first and largely forgotten Chinatown in Limehouse.
The Pocket London maps are printed in London by Earthbound Press using vegetable based inks, and arrive at your doorstep in a handsome black string and washer envelope – perfect for gifting!
