On 30 July we launched Swimming to Heaven: The Lost Rivers of London by Iain Sinclair. This is the second volume in our celebrated Swedenborg Archive series. In this book, Iain Sinclair follows the ‘lost’ underground rivers of London and examines their influence on the visionary literature of the capital.
Swimming to Heaven is currently the no.1 BESTSELLER at the London Review Bookshop. We are extremely pleased that this little volume is repeating the success of Blake’s London: The Topographic Sublime (Swedenborg Archive, vol. I), and would encourage you to pick up a copy for only £5.95. The book is available to order from the LRB, our website and Amazon.co.uk; you can also pick up a copy at the Broadway Bookshop in Hackney and other independent stores across London. Your local bookshop can order a copy for you via Gardners or Bertrams.
These editions are available for only £30 each, from our website. There are only 6 copies left of the original 26 (no.11, letter K is pictured above).
