Grim, grimy and fixated by London's underbelly, this clever collection is an estate agent's nightmare and a psychogeographer's dream.
-Guardian

Synopsis

Here is a cityscape of looming towers, shadowy embankments, and subterranean sleaze; of public bars and private vices; of huckster artists, femmes fatales, and capital crimes... With strong language, and stronger imagery, It’s Dark in London is an uncompromisingly adult descent into the dark underground world of the capital.

“The mix of illustrators is so good... The book succeeds in making the reader look at the city with fresh eyes.” — Time Out

It’s Dark in London is a courageous attempt to stretch the medium... What’s most exciting is how fully the writers embrace the form. The best stories have texts that are honest to the bone, going for pure noir atmosphere ahead of plot everytime, and reveal London to be a place of suspicion – a true ghost town.” — GQ Magazine

“Takes noir London as its theme and travels into unexpected territory... Unmissable.” — i-D Magazine
