Publisher's description: Memories of other places, travel notebooks chronicle the experience of getting to know each other and ourselves. They have been companions of artists from Durer to Philip Delord, going through the orientalists, those who did the Grand Tour and explorers. The Art of Sketching illustrates the great scientific and journalistic adventures in history, from the Egyptian campaign to the war in Iraq. It also explores more intimate territories capturing and preserving the essence of our world. Between text and image, this stunning collection travels through a wide range of techniques and across the centuries revealing the most beautiful pages of a very human adventure.
