We’re very happy to report that Stevie Finegan has sold World Rights to Cierra Block‘s LONDON BLOCK BY BLOCK to OH! Editions, in a two-book deal. The deal was announced by The Bookseller and BookBrunch late last week. The book — which will be out in September — is based on Block’s popular Instagram account, which she launched in 2018, and features highly-detailed illustrations of some of the best and most interesting spots in London. Here’s the book’s synopsis…
For anyone who loves London – whether you’re visiting for the weekend or are a die-hard local – this is the book for you.
Artist Cierra Block loves to create maps, and this compilation will have you uncovering the best things London has on offer. Featuring the most notable places to eat, what to see, where to walk and what to do, this is a guide like no other.
Vibrantly illustrated, Cierra lists all the top addresses and areas to explore. Find out where to indulge in the best afternoon tea and festive mince pies; jump on a bike and take a spin around Shoreditch or Hampstead like a local; or follow in the footsteps of the Suffragettes.
From haunted spots for true-crime lovers, to the best bookshops, romantic strolls and coffee pit-stops, London, Block by Block will make your next visit to London the most memorable one yet.
The book is due to be published in the UK on September 15th, and in North America on September 20th. Spanish rights have also sold to Editorial Planeta SA.
Associate publisher of OH! Editions Kate Pollard had this to say of the books…
‘Cierra’s maps are not just beautiful to look at, they contain addresses of hidden gems that even London locals might not know about. I’m thrilled to have worked with Cierra on this project, and I must confess that I myself have discovered some new haunts and rediscovered some areas of London I’d forgotten about during lockdown. I’m very much looking forward to working with her on her next instalment.’
