    A lively illustrated tour of London in the company of Vic Lee  artist, storyteller and self-confessed ‘ragamuffin from south-east London’.

    Based on Vic Lee’s series of prints of London, this book covers a variety of different streets and areas across the city, from Walthamstow Village in the north to Lordship Lane in East Dulwich in the south, from Broadway market in the east to Portobello Road in the west.

    Through over twenty different areas, he brings to life the local life and architecture. Interwoven around the places are stories and anecdotes that he has picked up during his research and conversations along the way, as well as some that may or may not be true…

    The Corona Diary is Vic’s first book. Very different in look and feel from his commissioned work, the Diary is a continuous journal, unplanned and spontaneous in its illustrating and writing, with stories that merge and develop page by page.
