Penguin Underground Lines Twelve Stories From Twelve Authors

£150.00

Product description

Name: Penguin Underground Lines Vital statistics: Twelve books, one for each Underground line, to celebrate the Tube's 150th anniversary. Height: when all twelve are stacked up: 47.6 inches. Idea for series: Penguin asked twelve people to tell their tale of the city in 15,000 words (or in one case, no words at all), each inspired by a different tube line. Defining characteristics: While the responses range from the polemical to the fantastical, the personal to the societal, they offer something for every taste. Read individually they're delightful small reads, pulled together they offer a particular portrait of a global city. Appearance: determined by the authors, who photographed/drew/picked their cover image, chose their title and wrote the back cover copy, the Penguin logo also takes an outing in the official colour of each tube line -- a unique play with Penguin's design. Books are 'as new'; card slipcase has a little shelf wear and is 'very good'.

Oxfam Bookshop Lymington

Lymington is on the South coast, bordering on the New Forest National Park which was created as a Royal Forest in 1079 by William the Conqueror, and first recorded as 'Nova Foresta' in the Doomsday Book in 1086. Our Oxfam Shop at 73, The High Street is in a lovely Georgian building, the tallest in Lymington. The elegant Georgian buildings lining the wide main street were built mostly for merchants in the local salt trade. The famous Saturday market brings the town to life with its variety of stalls. The area is renowned for outdoor pursuits, including camping, sailing, windsurfing, and surfing, as well as forest walks and horse riding.
