Taking a Line for a Walk PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Taking a Line for a Walk free pdf Not long before his 70th birthday, Christopher Lambert decided to walk solo across Europe, from Le Havre to Rome. He drew a blue line across a map of Europe and seventy-one walking days and 1000 miles later, with a small rucksack (whose most essential contents were a water bottle and a spare pair of socks), he arrived in the Eternal City. A sketchbook and pencils were his journey-long companions. This colourful book is an unedited facsimile of his daily sketches and the commentary of a very personal trek along that blue line. For ease of reading, a typeset margin has been added to each page, guiding the reader across the map and as a precis to Christopher's daily thoughts and observations. The mixture of vibrant colour sketches and hand-written, spontaneous thoughts give the reader a vivid glimpse of the road to Rome as undertaken by this unique and inspiring man. Christopher is a superb draughtsman and his drawings lead the way, being both charming and evocative. They capture the beauty of the landscapes, the grandeur of the cities, and the tone, be it humerous or heartfelt, of those he encountered along the way.
