"Readers will enjoy the captions which include tips from the artists as well as "specs" on the sketches: size, paper, media, and in most cases, working time. It's fun to be told the media and size to get a sense of the work. It's great to see how some artists work quickly and deliberately and others spend an entire afternoon or even series of afternoons working on a piece. This type of information will be interesting to inexperienced urban sketchers who labor under an impression there is one right way to approach this endeavor. This book will disabuse them of this notion and free them up for their own experiments." —Roz StendahlRead Stendahl's full review on her blog.
