Book Review: Urban Sketching The Freedom Trail: Walking and Sketching Boston's Famous Trail


Here's another self-published sketchbook by Mike Daikubara. I had also reviewed his earlier book Hotel Sketch Mike Sketch back in 2013.

This one's a paperback with only 74 pages. It's about A5 size landscape.

Collected within are sketches made along the Freedom Trail, a 4km path that runs through downtown Boston, Massachusetts. It leads to 16 significant historic sites which are all included in this sketchbook. Maps are included, so it's sort of serves as a walking guidebook as well.

The text comes in the form of observations about the places. They are rather brief though, as I would expect more paragraphs talking about the history of the buildings and events that happened. That would have made the book more informative to more readers, especially those who don't live in the area.

This is a nice find. I like loose ink and watercolour sketches.

Urban Sketching The Freedom Trail: Walking and Sketching Boston's Famous Trail is available at Amazon (US | CA | UK | DE | FR | IT | ES | JP | CN) and Book Depository
