I went to the London Book Fair for the first time earlier this month, held at the Earls Court Exhibition Centre, but I was saddened to learn the fate of this venue. This handy and iconic art deco style London landmark has been London's main exhibition hall for many decades, but it's to be demolished to make way for a new development.
I'll miss the distinctive sense of place and history associated with this building and it's proximity to the tube station. These sketches are my homage to this special place.
