Graham Byfield's latest book collects the watercolour sketches he made at the university town Cambridge.
I really enjoyed looking at the campus, all the wonderful architecture, and reading all about the history behind. The pencil and watercolour sketches are lovely. Graham Byfield's style of watercolour is more subtle compared to other artists and evokes a softer feeling.
There are a lot of places featured, basically all around Cambridge. There's also a few pages of writeup by Marcus Binney on the town, gown and the academic world. In addition to the buildings, there are also sketches of people, such as City Rangers sticking posters on railings, cyclists and even the Hop-on-and-off tourist bus.
This book makes me want to go there for sketching as well.
