    Hypnotically beautiful. And this is why I just cannot get into the Kindle. I love hard copy.

    Not that I seek to diminish the content of this book in any way with this comment but I am going to buy a copy of this book purely on the back of watching this short film of it’s production, in my opinion it truly is a work of art in every sense.

    Missing the necessary plug in, I went to You Tube and typed in CRIES OF LONDON. Which brought up Orlando Gibbon’s ‘Cries of London’, Quite delightful music. Hoping the book will ‘open on Broadway ‘ at the Strand Bookstore!
