Signed Edition

'David has spent a lifetime depicting with wit and affection a London he has made his own' - Alan Bennett

David Gentleman has lived in London for almost seventy years, most of it on the same street. This book is a record of a lifetime spent observing, drawing and getting to know the city, bringing together work from across his whole career, from his earliest sketches to watercolours painted just a few months ago.

Here is London as it was, and as it is today: the Thames, Hampstead Heath; the streets, canals, markets and people of his home of Camden Town; and at the heart of it all, his studio and the tools of his work. Accompanied by reflections on the process of drawing and personal thoughts on the ever-changing city, this is a celebration of London, and the joy of noticing, looking and capturing the world.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'My Town illustrates both the unreliable underpinnings and the unbridled fun of life in Britain's capital..In particular, he shows us that London might be a wobbly place, but it is still full of wonders.' - The Financial Times

'..a wonderful illustrated account of his 70 years living and working in London..You don't need to be anywhere near London to respond to Gentleman's urgent suggestion that we look harder at what's right in front of us.' - The Guardian
