The perfect gift for any lover of Dublin, muincipal history or art, Dublin In Sketches And Stories is a magnificent coffee table book. I spent a year sketching on the streets of Dublin, through the four seasons. My brother, a keen amateur historian with an encylopædic knowledge of Dublin’s past, was my guide, adviser and consultant throughout. In this book there are 166 pages, in colourful sketches and lively writing, about what happens when you take to the streets to draw. As well as Dublin’s rich history, you’ll lose yourself in the stories you’ll read. All the illustrations (over 125 of them) are in ink and watercolour and with one or two exceptions were done right there on the street, from start to finish.
Please let me know if you would like a dedication or even a doodle on the inside page, and it would be my pleasure to do that for you.
We expect to start shipping by Friday October 15th, with pre-orders available now.
