Sketch Your World: Essential Techniques for Drawing on Location - I've not only got this book by my good friend and fellow urban sketcher James Hobbs, I've got a profile in it!
Hello, New York: An Illustrated Love Letter to the Five Boroughs by Julia Rothman - I like the idea behind this book, one woman recording the city where she lives. This woman is an illustrator and does not blog and doesn't seem to publish her sketches, although I could be wrong about this
Citysketch New York: Over 100 Creative Prompts for Sketching the Big Apple - by Melissa Wood who is an illustrator and architectural planner. I'm less impressed with this book, it seems to be targeted at those who also like to doodle (which is the other big theme of 2014 and one which I'm ignoring!).
Urban Watercolor Sketching: A Guide to Drawing, Painting, and Storytelling in Color - by Felix Scheinberger. You can see his sketches on his website. This one I'm looking forward to seeing and reviewing as the man actually has a major track record of travelling and sketching.
CitySketch London: Over 100 Creative Prompts for Sketching the City on the Thames by Melissa Wood - I've only included this one as I'm totally intrigued as to what possesses any publisher to commission an American to do a book about sketching London. Speaking, as I do, as a founder member of the Urban Sketchers London group!
The Art of City Sketching: A Field Manual by Michael Abrams. This chap is the co-ordinator of the Interior Architecture Program at the George Washington University in Washington, DC. This seems to have an aim to become some sort of set text for students in higher education. Looks very techie - just at the point where the theme of urban sketching seems to be becoming more about how to enjoy drawing buildings more in a less techie way!
So - did I miss any? Are there any more out there?
[P.S. I am aware of the Chinese book which is copying the "The Art of Urban Sketching" title. I've been invited and am ignoring this - it's just plain disrespectful in my view. This is Gabi Campanario's blog post about the book which is trying to copy his book - see Dopress book not my project]
