Celebrate the importance of the sketchbook in this evening of illustrated talks as The House of Illustration launch Martin Ursell’s ‘Keeping Sketchbooks’
Sketchbooks are vital to the work of illustrators, artists, designers and even medical professionals. Come along for an evening of talks to celebrate the publication of Martin Ursell’s new book Keeping Sketchbooks.
Hear from three of the book’s nineteen contributors. John Vernon Lord will share his spectacularly detailed and brilliant sketchbooks of doodles and jottings complied over fifty years. Phil Carter of Carter Wong studio gives us a rare opportunity to view his stunning reportage sketchbooks. And hand surgeon Donald Summat provides insight into his immaculate working sketchbooks complied during operations and consultations.
The book will be available in the shop for signing, and Martin Ursell is offering a free copy of his limited edition Zootime, featuring a selection from thirty years of zoo drawings to anyone buying the book.
