Day 70 - End of the Torch Relay!

Today we're crossing the finish line at the end of our Torch Relay around Britain. From the starting pistol in Lands End, we've made it 8,000 miles around Britain through the book collection at MoDA.

London Night and Day, illustrated by Osbert Lancaster, Museum of Domestic Design & Architecture, JMR672
This book explores London Night and Day. Here, the designer has dramatically split the cover into light and shade, allowing both daytime and night time activities to be illustrated. The cover also uses a quirky top-down view point, giving a birds-eye view of the parks and a flat, cartoon portrayal of London's buildings.

We wish all the athletes in this year's Olympics the best of luck and hope they enjoy their stay in London!
