"Campanario founded the nonprofit organization Urban Sketchers,
and this book showcases the work of over 100 artists worldwide
who draw scenes from the cities where they live and travel,
posting them at urbansketchers.org. The concept caught on fast,
and new groups are forming around the world, connecting with each
other online. Here, Campanario offers guidance on tools,
techniques, the urban environment, and drawing styles, but the
main strength of this book is the 500-plus full-color examples of
successful sketches drawn in metropolises and towns all over the
globe. VERDICT: Part travel book, part art instruction, this is a
great guide to look at before (or instead of) your next
vacation." - Library Journal
