NEW! Sketches of Hong Kong - 2024 Calendar
Watch out for more new products coming - just in time for Christmas Fairs!
It was only a matter of time before Lorette came up with a book about boats - so here it is, in her instantly recognisable style and colours! You will find some historic references, sketches/paintings of the icons in Victoria Harbour, yachts big/small, the usual busy working vessels, many varieties of large/small river boats, many beautifully decorated ….. plus of course, the ropes, floats, fenders and anchors that are always nearby.
This book is spiced with Lorette’s hand-written notes of interesting trivia, facts discovered in her research and comments about the boats.
In common with all her books, this does not claim to be a reference tome but it is one that endeavours to conjure up memories and to trigger the imagination. For example, just what does Charlotte Dundas have to do with tugboats? and where would you put a ‘long button’? …..and, by the way, whilst floating through the pages, don’t forget to spot her little snails – one on every Page!
304mm x 217mm (Landscape) 72 pages
COLOUR HONG KONG!
Lorette E. Roberts (A4 Landscape with high quality paper). The spiral binding allows it to lie flat.
Lorette invites us to use the book as a sketchbook, scrapbook or travelogue and provides - alongside her own images - guidelines/tips on sketching.
The book is divided into sections, indicated by coloured strips on the edge of each right hand page. These sections include: Chinese New Year, Celebrations, Traditional Hong Kong, Nature (of course!) and ships.
Not just another book about Hong Kong- with its delightful and colourful sketches and paintings, it aids and abets the current craze to “colour something in”!
