City Sketch Paris
Melissa Wood, Race Point Publishing, £9.99

Paris has long tapped into the artistic side of its captivated visitors, and this sketchbook-cum-guidebook invites you to get your creative juices flowing by sketching your way around the city’s sites. Doodle over partially drawn Parisian landmarks and landscapes, ranging from obvious tourist destinations – the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame – to lesser-known bistrots, festivals and boutiques. The half-completed sketches are stylised and fun and you don’t have to be a talented artist to add to them in your own way; returning home from your trip to Paris, you’ll take with you an intimate, visual diary of your personal impressions of the City
of Light. ★★★★
