After following Nate's class on Sketchbook Skool, I got to work for my very first map! This one is a map of my own town, Neuchâtel in Switzerland. Neuchâtel is a quite small but beautiful town on the shores of a lake. A great place to stop and relax.
This is based on a book by my GGGrandfather Edwin Rainbow. He was a journalist, author and Registrar of Birth and Deaths in Coventry, UK at the turn of the last century. He wrote this book in 1916 as a turn by turn description of several walks through his (and my) home city. It's like a time capsule as he describes elegant tree-lined avenues, the tram system and industries of the time. Most of the city was destroyed in WWII and it's fascinating to read what's still there and what's long forgotten.
I was in Bologna last month to visit Bologna Children's Book Fair. It was my third time to visit this beautiful Italian city. I love their stunning porticos, interesting museums, galleries and lovely bookstores. As a book lover, I especially adore Biblioteca Salaborsa, a beautiful library, which has a giant archaeological site beneath your feet you can see through a glass floor. Bologna is also a city for gelato lovers. There are so many great flavors and combinations to try!!!!
Anzio is a seaside fishing town near Rome. It's a well known place for its historical events; Roman Emperor Nerone was born here and the ruins of ist villa are still around the coast. Tourists (and locals too) enjoy the delicious seafood Anzio is famous for. Every day fishing boats bring to the port tons of fishes and other precious delicacies from the sea. And the local restaurants serve the best and most delicious mediterranean meals! And let's not forget Anzio's amazing handmade gelatos! Wish you all to visit beautiful Anzio soon.
Stroll in the sunshine through the quintessentially British spa town of Harrogate. After bargain hunting for antiques in The Montpellier Quarter, take afternoon tea at Betty's historic tea rooms. Don't forget to wave 'Hello' to Tarquin the bulldog as he trundles through Valley Gardens stopping to sniff the flowers. www.katybloss.com
