A FIELD GUIDE TO EAST LONDON WILDLIFE by Ian McDonnell & Harry Ades
Published by Hoxton Mini Press (2014)
Imagine a 19th Century nature guide that has been squarely dropped into 21st Century urban life. Stealthy garden foxes, escaped parakeets, illegally imported snakes and feral cats are rendered as romantic etchings set against the chaos of East London life in this pocket bound wildlife guide with a twist.
Each drawing is accompanied by factual text that is both humorous and informative and which reminds us of the strange beauty and life that thrives amongst some of London’s most urban areas.
