Look at this! Simon Faithfull

We are big fans of artist Simon Faithfull and have a copy of his limited edition book, King’s Cross: A Pictorial Guide (unreliable) 2012 Ditto Press

The grandness of the statues and buildings identified is juxtaposed with Simon’s idiosyncratic personal anecdotes, such as falling of a bicycle drunk and knocking his tooth out, bringing the geography and narrative of the walk alive. Each page features Simon’s drawings.
