A charmingly illustrated journey through Sydney, neighbourhood by neighbourhood. All theBuildings in Sydney is a love letter to James Gulliver Hancock's home town, told through his unique and charming drawings of the city's diverse architectural styles and cityscape. His buildings are colourful and chock full of fun and offbeat details, and this book is full of new discoveries as well as old chestnuts for anyone who loves the Harbour City. Organised by neighbourhoods, the book features iconic Sydney structures, such as the Opera House and Harbour Bridge, as well as the everyday buildings that give the city its character - the terrace houses in Paddington, the bungalows by the beach, and the incredible sandstone buildings from Sydney's past. Long-time Sydney residents and tourists alike will savour this one-of-a-kind volume that uniquely celebrates the energy and spirit of this beautiful city on the water.
