Gone Walkabout

 All the buildings in Sydney that I am about to see, fall in love with, research and photograph.
Ditto Melbourne. Cowes, Ventnor and Rhyll. Hobart. Add Ballarat. Christchurch. Also Dunedin and Oamaru. Then there's Napier. Wellington. And finally Aukland.

These two delightful books of building sketches by James Gulliver Hancock made their way to my desk last spring, imported by friends Larry and Bill, just back from enjoying the other side of the world. In a short while, we will be doing the same. Some of it in their most delightful company.
