Reviews - What do customers think about My Venetian Sketchbook?

I have a collection of travel sketchbooks and quite a few are from Venice. This is an exceptional one in the very best way. I was not looking for a "how-to" and didn't find it, I was looking for inspiration and a unique view, and I definitely found that. The paintings capture the mystery and magic of Venice in a very fresh, sometimes nearly abstract way. I definitely recommend this to anyone interested in recording their own travels or just remembering time spent in Venice.
