Review for Abandoned London

Review for Abandoned London

Abandoned London, Dark, Underground, Abandoned Buildings, Photographs, Non-Fiction, London, Katie WignallI received this book from Netgalley in exchange of an honest review.

I just had to get this book when I saw it on Netgalley. I love London, and even more so because I visited the city a few years back. Since, due to Brexit I probably won’t be visiting any time soon, this book was definitely needed! Plus, I love abandoned buildings, wish I could visit some and make some gorgeous photographs.

In this one we see various abandoned buildings in various themes. From residences to stores to underground. Some of the buildings are still in quite OK condition, some are just falling apart and I wonder how long it will take before things collapse. The pictures were often quite haunting because it seemed at times that someone just up and left instead of taking their things with them. Some buildings had some gorgeous architecture and geometric designs which I just absolutely loved.

I loved the intros to each new theme. While also hard to read I did manage to read them all by getting close to my screen, haha.

The photographs were of good quality. Unlike the Lighthouse book I also just finished, this one’s photographs are not grainy, not too blurry, just good. And I am very happy with that.

I have to say I didn’t read the text that was on/near some photographs. The font was just too tiny and ADE just doesn’t allow one to zoom in, so I couldn’t read the text. A shame, as I was curious what was written there.

Star rating, 4 stars
