Inspired by pocket-sized sketchbooks artists often carry while traveling, the 32-page, spiral-bound publication ($26) presents Lawrence's highly detailed, often fantasy-laden drawings of 24 cities from around the world. "At the end, readers may use their own words and images to portray their favorite cities on five blank pages," Lawrence says.
