Item description for Kuala Lumpur Sketchbook by Chen Voon Fee...

In Kuala Lumpur it is easy to overlook the blend of Malay, Chinese, and Indian cultures and the corresponding traditional and colonial architectural treasures. With Chin Kon Yit's artist's eye and architect Chen Voon Fee as a guide, this book will lead you through the riches that remain and expose the city's unique character.

Over 100 watercolor paintings and 50 sketches depict the city's grandest buildings, humblest shops, and typical street scenes. After a historical survey of the founding of Kuala Lumpur, complete with maps and nostalgic views, seven chapters view the city's main districts.

Reviews - What do customers think about Kuala Lumpur Sketchbook?

A wonderful depiction of Kuala Lumpur's majestic architecture & everyday life  Jun 17, 2007
Most of the Sketchbooks series don't disappoint - they bring to life the architecture of the cities they cover, and also depict the culture and everyday life in the cities. There are over 150 watercolor paintings here that coupled with the sketches provide a wonderful introduction to Malaysia's capital city, covering not just the premier buildings, but also shophouses & typical street scenes. The watercolors and skethches take us on a journey of discovery, from Kuala Lumpur's beginnings as a tin-mining district, to its present status as cosmopolitan capital of Malaysia. The watercolors are lush and the depictions of the historic buildings are majestic. The details are amazing, and I especially admire the juxtaposition of new, modern buildings with older, historic ones. The depiction of everyday life is quite authentic, as we get to see watercolors of typical street scenes [having been to Kuala Lumpur many times myself, I can vouch for this],and of people of various ethnicities going about their daily business. There is even a glossary at the back of the book that provides more information about the major buildings depicted. A treasure of a sketchbook!
