SOME COLOURED CHALK, THE QUEEN AND A KING
The Hungry Bookling – 17th May 2020
‘An Urban Sketcher’s Galway’ is a collection of stunning sketches brought together with the authors personal experience of her life in Galway, Ireland. This is not a how-to-book on sketching although the author does share some tips on becoming an urban sketcher. However, I would say it definitely falls into the categories of inspiration and pure enjoyment. This book is stunning. When you first open the front cover you know you are holding something rather special in your hands. The paper is thick and luxurious. It definitely fits the bill as a coffee table book you would happily leave this book out for guests to leaf through – if you don’t mind sharing that is! You get an incredible insight into the every day life of Galway and its histories and it is all bought together with lively sketches that are truly one of a kind. The author’s love for Galway springs from the pages. This is a truly lovely book and that fellow booklings is my honest and unbiased opinion as always!
