***My Italian Sketchbook

by Florine Asch

Reviewed February 18, 2004.
Flammarion, 2002. 
Available on for $17.47 in hardcover.
Available at Sembach Library (759.4 ASC).

My Italian Sketchbook is exactly what it sounds like.  Florine Asch took a Grand Tour of Italy.  Like the tourists of long ago, she brought along her sketchbook.  The privileged reader of this book gets to share her perspective on Italy, done in lovely watercolors.

This lovely sketchbook doesn’t take long to browse through and gives you the flavor of Italy.  Although I love taking photographs, I envy Florine Asch the time and skill it took to sit and paint all these sights in Italy.
