Book Review: Seville from Top to Bottom by Inma Serrano

Seville from Top to Bottom by Inma Serrano - 01

Seville from the Top to Bottom is a beautiful artbook of sketches drawn by Inma Serrano (Instagram), an artist and illustration teacher based in Seville.

This 96-paperback is a personal travel journal that's filled with mixed media art and interesting stories of the city. The artworks are printed on good quality paper, thick, matte and off-white. The colour reproduction is wonderful.

Seville is a Spanish city is located in the Province of Seville which is in the western part of the autonomous community of Andalusia. I've actually been to Seville before in 2013 with my friends after the Urban Sketchers Symposium that happened in Barcelona. It's definitely a very beautiful city that I would love to visit again, especially after looking at all the places in this book that I've not been to.

The layout of this book is unusual. When you reach the centre of the book, the content is flipped upside down. From one cover, it starts from the south to north Seville, and from the other cover, it's from north to south.

All the drawings in this book are accompanied by stories of the neighbourhood and her personal observations.

I'm actually a fan of Inma Serrano's style. I love her mixed media art, the way she uses different drawing materials, vibrant colours, looseness and dynamism. If I can describe her art in a single word, it would be fun. I'm very inspired by her style and I may actually borrow some for my own sketches. This is definitely a book I would revisit often.

Highly recommended, of course.
