One of the fascinations of old buildings is speculating upon their past. Who built them-and why? Who lived in them- and what were they like? In Brisbane Sketchbook, 29 of the capital city’s most historic and interesting buildings are discussed in this way. The author, Peter Newell, has combined skilful research with a straightforward literary style to present a colourful cross-section of Brisbane’s history. All the buildings mentioned can still be seen, and Unk White has captured their atmosphere with his usual vigorous mastery of line. The combined talents of author and artist make Brisbane Sketchbook a most attractive souvenir of a city…and in these days when so much of the past is being obscured or destroyed, it is an important contribution to local knowledge.
