Finding a Place to Sit
Keith Valentine, Pages from a travel sketchbook



  Welcome to my website which features my book about travel sketching




For thirty five years I have carried a sketchbook on my travels instead of a camera.


This book is about what happened when I did so...

 My sketchbook opened doors, I met people,

I actually saw places (like the Registan in Samarkand, above)

 because I had to look carefully in order to draw them.

I could draw where I could not take photos. I could go on. I do in the book.


The nature of my trips changed completely.

Read my book and try sketching for yourselves.
