I love sketches and architecture. This book has both.
This book is actually a travel journal with sketches on location by Alain Bouldouyre. The sketches are done in pencil or pen with watercolour. The subject is Paris, their people and amazing architecture. The sketches are well composed, colours pleasing and scenes captivating.
The journal entries are a pleasure to read, fitting to be on any travel magazines. The account is descriptive and conjures the mood that makes people want to travel. The text is actually written by Christophe Auduraud.
The hardcover is actually clothed cardboard with a white textured paper pasted over it for the cover art.
For people who collect sketchbooks or love water colour paintings, this might be the book for you. If you like this kind of books, you might also want to check out My Italian Sketchbook by Florine Asch.
