The Book Has Arrived!

The book is finally available!  Thanks to all of you who sent me photos of your copy arriving in the mail.  Here's a link to the Amazon page; if you scroll down a bit you'll see a sample video compiled from the seven demonstration videos that accompany the book:

  1. A few weeks ago Liz Steele recommended your book on her blog and because it sounded interesting, I got a copy. I love it! The book is so useful, not just for designers and architects, but also for amateur sketchers - this afternoon I practiced trees. :-)

  3. Hi! I travel frequently for work and am a beginning sketcher. (Drawing is a great way to explore a new city). I want to buy your book, but prefer an e-version (iPad compatible). Is an e-version in the works?

  6. Just downloaded the book onto my ipad. LOVE IT. I have two questions: How do access the seven tutorial videos advertised on the cover? You mention somewhere above you are planning a sketchcrawl in November in Boston--- during the National ASLA conference, I hope?

    1. Hi Kim! The e-book version I've seen is the "Enhanced E-Book" available on Amazon. In that one, the video links are at the end of the table of contents, and then embedded in the book with little screenshots where that particular lesson is described. If your book doesn't have those links, send me an email to jim@townscape.com and I'll send you a separate link. thanks, Jim
