It inspired me to do two drawings of my own - one which was lost to an ex boyfriend ... (he better be looking after it!) and I kept the other myself. It remains in the kitchen where I look at it daily and can't believe how patient I can be sometimes! I also did a series of houses when I was doing Etching at Uni many years later.

Well, as luck would have it, the book seemed to have disappeared from the library and so I thought it was lost forever ... UNTIL ... a few years ago on a holiday in Atherton and I was scouring through an Antique store, and BINGO !! I spotted the book - in pristine condition! What a fabulous moment!

I was just looking through it the other night thinking how much I still love drawing houses and so am keeping it handy for that 'break' in the traffic ....
