Book Review: Melbourne Word by Word

Melbourne Word by Word

Melbourne Word by Word
by Michael McMahon

It’s only fitting that the world’s most liveable city has its own book dedicated to its beauty, its quirks and its landmarks (there’s a Sydney one too, but shhh … everyone knows Melbourne is the best, right?).

Melbourne Word by Word makes the city’s words, sounds and sights leap from the page. You’ll feel like you’re taking a stroll along the Yarra and have pangs of nostalgia with every illustration.

No ordinary city guide, it’s a celebration of a city that the whole family will enjoy and makes for a stylish coffee table book too. How Melbourne is that?

Available from Book Depository with free worldwide shipping.
