"Paris Sketchbook" is a stunning gift book from leading international fashion illustrator Jason Brooks. Although he is best known for his beautiful fashion imagery, which has regularly graced the pages of Vogue and Elle magazines, travel has been a recurrent theme in his work and his adventures continue to inspire and inform his visual repertoire. During his time on fashion assignments at the Couture shows in Paris, Brooks developed a fascination for the city, drawing and painting beautiful travel journals that demonstrate his passion for all things Parisian. This book is a whimsical take on Paris, part guide book, part illustrated journal, it will appeal to both travellers and fashionistas. Sumptuous production with different stocks and inks will make this a must for anyone who loves fashion illustration and beautiful books.
"This book would make an amazing gift for your globe-trotting bestie, but be warned! You're definitely going to want a copy of your own." Kelli Ryder, "Rue Magazine"
