Blick Art was also able to introduce us to Quarto Publishing Group USA.  According to their website, “Quarto Publishing Group USA, formed in 2004, creates and publishes illustrated books in North America and sells co-editions of them internationally.”  One of the books that Quarto has published is the book written by Gabi Campanario, Urban Sketchers’s founder and is called The Art of Urban Sketching.  The Art of Urban Sketching highlights urban sketch artists from around the world, sharing images of their art work, and descriptions of their techniques and areas of expertise.  Quarto Publishing has generously provided numerous copies of the book and they will be available to be won at Sunday’s raffle.  We look forward to sharing these great books with you!  Many thanks to Quarto Publishing Group for this generous, and fitting contribution!
