Author(s): Pete Bossley
A Year spent travelling as a young architect tuaght Pete Bossley how to 'read' a building and instilled in him a life-long love of drawing. In One Year Drawn he shares this voyage of discovery - and the places and people he encounters along the way. Now one of New Zealand's most respected architects, Pete writes of a European odyssey that saw him visit and sketch many of the world's great buildings. The reader joins him as he travels from London to Italy, onwards to Greece and Turkey, and north to visit the works of the great Scandanavian architects. Too poor to afford film for his camera, he resorts to buying a hotchpotch of sketchbooks in which to record his observations and thoughts. Part travelogue, part memoir, this unique book will appeal to lovers of architecture and art, and anyone who enjoys an intelligent and at times humorous read.
