Book News Reviews
Sometimes, rarely, you can peek into someone else's brain and discover what they thought about a person, place or thing. This is such an opportunity. Gregory, an English advertising executive who lives and works in New York, has tapped into the creative side of over forty artists. They have opened their travel journals to him, and the results are startling. An artist draws his new home as he approaches it, another moves to Saint Paul, one becomes a missionary and draws the Dominican Republic, an artist from North Carolina makes books in the Northwest, a graphic designer draws from Italy, an ad executive draws travel-based comic book covers, an animator draws in Italy, a marketeer plans to move to Paris, a man from Wales runs a website, and, of course, there is at least one blogger. The result is joyous, fun, and intriguing. Annotation ©2014 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
