"The City of York Companion" provides a unique insight into one of the most famous and historic cities in England. The authors have combined impressive calligraphy for the complete text and evocative drawings to produce an outstanding record of a city which the Romans established in AD 71 and occupied for almost 300 years. Most cities are best explored on foot. In York, thankfully, there is no other way, and with its winding streets, intriguing 'snickelways', riverside walks and the icing on the cake of the city walls, it is a pedestrian's paradise. The city has been fortunate in that it has not suffered the periodic destructions by war, natural disasters or redevelopment that has been the lot, for example, of the City of London. Its architectural history has been one of a gentle ebb and flow with each succeeding period leaving its mark but not at the expense of those that have gone before. York has in fact experienced relatively little in the way of large scale modern development and consequently presents a picture of delightful unity, the various periods of building existing in perfect visual harmony. "The City of York Companion", with its inspiring and highly original presentation, takes the visitor through every part of the fascinating area within the city walls. It will prove to be an indispensable guide for all those interested in this great city.
