Follow the story of a city from ancient colony to vast modern metropolis with A City Through Time . In this stunning update of the popular original, let the full-colour illustrations transport you back to another age, as the award-winning Steve Noon brings the past to life in style.

Plus each scene has a page devoted to key features, so you can get up close to a Roman bath-house, a medieval castle or a modern skyscraper. Featuring a photographic section that profiles great cities through history and a glossary that tells you what you need to know about architecture, technology, work and costumes throughout the ages. Revised and updated for a new generation, Steve Noon's A City Through Time is perfect for parents and children to look at together or for school projects. The more you look, the more you'll see.
