Word by word, sound by sound, sight by familiar sight, this is a book that evokes the spirit of Melbourne. Take a meander through Melbourne’s iconic landmarks and hidden gems, and soak up the distinct Melbourne atmosphere, page by page. No ordinary word-book, and no ordinary city guide, Melbourne Word by Word is the celebration of a city, created by an illustrator who lives and works in the heart of it.
