Through the use of watercolor, black and white drawings, and evocative, informative text, “St. Augustine: A Sketchbook” takes the reader on a journey through the historical neighborhoods with stops at landmarks and other points of interest.
St. Augustine, Florida, is the oldest continuously occupied settlement of European origin in the United States, founded in 1565. This book is an artistic celebration of the city’s famous Spanish-style architecture as well as the Mediterranean Revival and British Colonial. Beyond the famous architecture, Rosamond Parrish captures the personalities and wildlife of St. Augustine through her delicate work and loving eye.
