Summary "This compact and lovely sketch book was created by architect Bill Fain while on a six-month Fellowship at the American Academy in Rome. Exploring the city on bicycle and eventually the countryside of Italy, he created in colored pencil this, his 41st sketchbook. The sketches start out modestly, small with a single method, and become more developed later on as the momentum of discovery built through the course of the journey. Readers will experience the same sense of discovery as they peruse the pages to find their favorite scene. This book is about growing and experiencing the glories of life; about the passion to know about those that have gone before; about the luxury of time, and setting some of it aside to reflect and to let the other side of the brain take charge, where instinct and intuition reside."--Publisher's website.
