Book Review: All the Buildings in London: That I've Drawn So Far

All the Buildings in London: That I've Drawn So Far - 01


All the Buildings in London is the second book in the All the Buildings Drawn series by James Gulliver Hancock from Australia. The first book featured New York buildings.

I love the simple and stylized look that James has used for his drawings. He has a nice way of simplifying the details and yet retain the essence of the buildings. Many are drawn on location while he's cycling around while others are drawn from reference photos. Either way, the drawings are beautiful. I also like the extra squiggly lines, blots, splashes and stylized clouds that he uses around the buildings to add that bit of liveliness.

Expect to see iconic buildings and monuments like the Buckingham Palace, St Paul's Cathedral, Trafalgar Square, Westminster Abbey, Houses of Parliament, Royal Albert Hall, London Eye and many more. This product of drawing all the buildings is ongoing and you can see the latest drawings at http://allthebuildingsinlondon.com

It's a wonderful book for sketchbook lovers. I hope to see more in the future.
