Summary With over 100 original and evocative watercolor paintings and pencil sketches, Singapore Sketchbook records the restoration of this historic city's rich architectural heritage. Included are paintings of some of the most successful major conservation projects, such as Raffles Hotel, St. Joseph's Institution (now the Singapore Art Museum), and the famous quays of the Singapore River. In addition, individual chapters focus on the city's diverse districts including: Chinatown, the Malay district, Kampong Glam, and Little India. Showcasing the beauty of a city tucked in the heart of Southeast Asia, Singapore Sketchbook is a must-have for seasoned globetrotters and armchair travelers alike.
