5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Parka HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 7 Sept. 2011
Format: Hardcover
Length: 1:02 Mins
I like that this book is a combination of art, architecture and also a bit of tour guidebook.

Jim Watson's watercolour drawings of London are very beautiful. The architecture there must be very detailed but they are in simplified form here. Effective and charming. The tourist attractions he covered are all accompanied by descriptions, many times historical footnotes because the of rich history.

The tour guide part comes in the form of a small drawn map that's essentially a walking map. Many of the places are accessible from the public train stations.

The book has 96 pages, and is rather small though, designed like a size of a travel guidebook.

It's a good souvenir and for those who like sketchbooks, traveling and architecture.

Format: Hardcover
A beautifully put together book, which is colourful, informative, a perfect size for taking with you, and has a hardback cover to keep the pages from getting bent or torn !
It is so well written, I actually felt engaged by the author in a way that I was being taken on my own personal tour, by someone that knows the place intimately, and could give me more in depth information than any general guide possibly could.
Easy to read, with fabulous fun pictures and really handy accurate maps - Thank you for a great guide I will definitely be getting these for other areas I want to go to now.

Awesome sketchbook travelogue 7 Jan. 2013
By Stephanie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I recently bought this book on a whim after I saw a book review by Parkablogs and I am so glad I purchased it. I love art books and I'm an art major and I found this book to be absolutely wonderful. It's small in size (like a sketchbook) and is filled with detailed drawings and little bits of information and facts about the places in London.
If you are thinking about whether you should buy this book or not, YOU WON'T REGRET buying it if you're a sketchbook travelogue fan.

Great little book enhanced by reader video review! 2 Mar. 2012
By Anne Salazar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I saw it, I liked it, I bought it! In fact, I bought this book as well as the author/artist's book Lake District Sketchbook and will probably buy his other sketchbook on The Cotswalds. I don't remember how I initially found these delightful books, but when I saw a reader's video review I was convinced I had to have the books and I bought them from Amazon UK. A video review by "Parka (Singapore)" showing the reader flipping through the pages of the book, pausing on some for his comments! Wow! This is what buying and selling books via a computer should be all about. And I love these clever little books. They are interesting and informative, fun to look at, and really make me want to travel to the UK again!

Thank you to author/artist Jim Watson for your books and to Parka for your audio/video review and to Amazon for offering the books!
