pop-up book of king's cross station

Discovering King's Cross: A Pop-Up Book charts the station's 160-year history, culminating in the regeneration work completed by architects John McAslan + Partners, who installed the new concourse and domed roof, and restored some of the structure's original features.

The book also describes the turbulent 1960s, where classicism was replaced by brutalism, and reveals how plans conceived in a mid-1990s to build the new Eurostar terminal at King's Cross helped to initiate the regeneration of the area. All of this is illustrated by Lucy Dalzell, with the pop-up section designed by paper engineering specialist, Corina Fletcher. Texts are by Michael Palin, Jay Merrick and Dan Cruickshank.
