Post-war London made great head way in dispelling the gloom and austerity of the 1940s through bright colourful design and stylised, comical illustrations. This cover, from 1951, features lively depictions of London’s attractions. The designer has divided the cover diagonally, showing London Night and Day in light and shade. The sky blue background and simple but bright colour scheme add to the books optimism and exuberance.
