The Art of Urban Sketching is both a comprehensive guide and a showcase of location drawings by artists around the world who draw the cities where they live and travel.

This beautiful volume explains urban sketching within the context of a long historical tradition and how it is practiced today.

It includes profiles of leading practitioners, a discussion of the benefits of working in this art form, and shows how one can participate and experience it through modern-day social networks and online activity.

The book is illustrated with over 700 beautiful, contemporary illustrations, and includes artists' profiles and extended captions where these urban sketchers share their stories, tips and tools.

With sketches and observations from more than 50 cities in more than 30 countries, the book offers a visually arresting, storytelling take on urban life from different cultures and artistic styles, as well as insight into various drawing techniques and mediums.
