Sunday Selection


No messing around this week folks, I’ve read a ton of interesting articles this weekend that I want to share with you so I’m cutting the waffle and going straight in with the good stuff:

Typography and cities – can you identify a city from a subway sign?

The importance of libraries with Ferguson as a case study #saveourlibraries

Pay it forward with pizza

In London we all talk about being within half a mile of a train station. But how much does being close to ‘transit’ shape our cities?

A narrow shop becomes a beautiful tiny home

The politics of urban planning in Cairo

Diamond Geezer researches the Evening Standard’s Homes and Property supplement

Have a great week,


P.S. I’ve had a busy week on the blogging front. I shared this quote about London being a bad habit, finally posted my Downtown LA guide, posted a few thoughts about the Oscar nominated Birdman and asked you where to find London’s best bookshops.
