Jan Bowman – This is Birmingham

THIS IS BIRMINGHAM children's book

“Jan’s book is a deceptively simple, yet beautifully illustrated journey along the canals and through the back alleys of Birmingham’s rich history…

from the Enlightenment through to the Industrial Revolution, ably guided via the Lunaticks, without whom this dynamic cultural melting pot we Brummies call home would be a very different place. This book will be top of my list not only for children this Christmas, but also for the grown-up kids still playing hide-and-seek in those back alleys.”   Brian Travers, UB40



Jan Bowman trained as an architect and now draws pictures for a living. Her work celebrates the best of 21st-century civilisation. Originally from Scotland via Canada, she lives in Birmingham with the Old Boot and two cats.
