Synopsis: Visitors and locals alike will love this book of whimsical sketches of Vancouver, British Columbia, accompanied by thoughtful observations and snippets of overheard conversations.

Take a tour of Vancouver's sights and sidewalks with Emma FitzGerald's hand-drawn impressions of her hometown, a city filled with stories--funny, surprising, and sometimes dark--amidst the cherry blossoms, beaches, and forests. Included are more than 100 sketches completed on location that, together, capture the essence of Vancouver. From Stanley Park's seawall to Kitsilano's salt-water swimming pool, and East Van's first craft brewery to the ferries in Horseshoe Bay, Hand Drawn Vancouver is a love letter to this beautiful and iconic city.
