"How to be and Explorer of the World"

I had a train journey to go on so i stopped off at the hear and now gallery were i bought this book. I read it all and started a sketch book as i was so inspired by the prompts the book has. This book is just so refreshing i feel it just the best way to remind us how to reconnect with the world and be inspired and creative. I advise anyone to own it.

"Artists and scientists analyse the world around them in surprisingly similar ways - by observing, collecting, documenting, analysing and comparing. In this captivating guided journal, readers are encouraged to explore their world as both artists and scientists. Smith sets the reader the mission of documenting and observing the world around them as if they've never seen it before - taking notes and collecting things they find on their travels. With a series of interactive prompts and a beautiful hand-illustrated two-colour package, readers will love exploring this gorgeous book."
