Shopfronts of London

In Praise of Small Neighbourhood Shops

by Eleanor Crow



Barnes and Noble Indiebound
Explore the beauty of London’s shopfronts through more than 100 wonderful watercolor illustrations.
As London’s high streets become either bland copies of each other or slip into decline, its remaining traditional shops are beacons of vintage charm. Sadly, they’re quickly disappearing, along with their attractive windows, eye-catching typography, and sense of history. Through her exquisite watercolors, Eleanor Crow pays tribute to more than 100 of these evocative shopfronts, from bakers, cafes, chemists, and fishmongers to hardware stores, greengrocers, and launderettes. Each painting is accompanied by information on the shop and its owners, background, and location.

Eleanor Crow is a book cover designer and illustrator. A passionate Londoner, she likes to draw everything from armadillos to zucchini.
