Product Description

Product Description

Travel + Sketching = Inspiration

When we travel, we don't want to follow the same itinerary as everyone who's come before us. We want to feel like explorers, adventurers in undiscovered territory. And that's exactly what sketching can bring to the travel experience.

An Illustrated Journey captures the world through the eyes of 40 talented artists, illustrators and designers. You'll experience the wonder of seeing familiar sights through a fresh lens but, more important, you'll be inspired to set pen to paper and capture your own vistas.

The really wonderful thing about a sketchbook is that it can be totally private. You don't have to have an ounce of talent to enjoy learning how to really see what's in front of you. But lucky for us, the sketchbooks captured here are lovely, creative, intimate windows into each artist's mind.

So, whether you're just returning to the art of drawing, abandoned by most of us after childhood, or you're looking for inspiration to take your illustration work in a new direction, An Illustrated Journey will take you on a wonderful trip of the imagination. All you need to pack are a pencil and a piece of paper.

4.0 out of 5 stars Review 26 Feb 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is another offering from the same stable as illustrated life and was eagerly awaited. Whilst this book is still an interesting collection of work it somehow has a more manufactured feel to it which was not present in the first. This is perhaps because the style of drawings are all very similar and there seems to be a lot of vibrant energetic sketches and very few quieter more delicate works. There is a lot of written explanations from the artists about their thoughts and working processes which I really find interesting and adds depth to the book. All in all this is a good book, not a great book like the first, but still a million times better than most books which are supposed to inspire. If you enjoy looking at other artists work or perhaps want some inspiration to start drawing again then this is a value for money book.

Imagine a book that makes you explode with enthusiasm: here it is! The sheer delight of every section and page. I'll be dipping into this one for years to come. Couldn't wait to get my sketchbook and colours out after racing through a few chapters. There isn't enough space here to tell you about the magic of turning each and every page to reveal yet another unique and individual style. Beautifully presented. Such rich treasures within. A tour de force.

5.0 out of 5 stars inspiring 1 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved this book. It is inspiring for someone experimenting with keeping a sketchbook. It's lovely to read different perspectives from the variety of artists who took part. I read it on the ipad, and wished that the images were higher resolution so that I could zoom in a bit more, but it was still a very satisfying read.
