The Book

Editors Jan Chlebik and Phil Griffin invited six artists to open their sketchbooks and reveal the city. These are among the growing number of people who regularly linger on street corners, concourses, squares and parks, recording our diurnal and nocturnal lives. Assembled to mark the 7th International Urban Sketchers Symposium that gathered in Manchester in July 2016, 'Manchester Sketchbook' has more than a hundred views of our great city, expressed by six different and distinctive artists.

One Hundred and twenty full colour pages by six Manchester Artists.
