Visitors and locals alike will love this book of whimsical sketches of Vancouver, British Columbia, accompanied by thoughtful observations and snippets of overheard conversations.

Take a tour of Vancouver’s sights and sidewalks with Emma FitzGerald’s hand-drawn impressions of her hometown, a city filled with stories—funny, surprising, and sometimes dark—amidst the cherry blossoms, beaches, and forests. Included are more than 100 sketches completed on location that, together, capture the essence of Vancouver. From Stanley Park’s seawall to Kitsilano’s salt-water swimming pool, and East Van’s first craft brewery to the ferries in Horseshoe Bay, Hand Drawn Vancouver is a love letter to this beautiful and iconic city.

PRIME TOURIST SEASON TIMING: Published to hit tourist season in BC and over 8 million visitors (3/4 of them from the United States).

WORLD’S MOST BEAUTIFUL CITY: Bordered by the Coast mountain range, the Fraser River, and the Pacific Ocean, Vancouver, B.C. is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. This book encapsulates the stunning landscapes of Vancouver.

TIMELESS CHARM: With Emma’s whimsical illustrative style and keen eye for detail, this book will appeal to people of any demographic. Her thoughtful vignettes are equally poignant for Vancouverites and tourists.

CREATIVE MARKETING PLANS: Appetite’s office is in Vancouver’s historic Gastown, and perfectly positioned for plenty of promotional activities. We are planning a range of unique online and in person marketing ideas, such as walking tours.

EMMA FITZGERALD was born to Irish parents in Lesotho, a small mountainous kingdom in Southern Africa. She moved to Canada at a young age and spent most of her childhood in Vancouver, BC. These early travels have instilled in her a keen interest in people and places.

Emma received a BFA in Visual Art from the University of British Columbia in 2004, and a Masters in Architecture from Dalhousie University in 2008. She has worked in architecture offices across Canada and in Johannesburg, South Africa. Her art practice is characterized by on-site drawing, place-based research, and a sense of the poetic.

“From the majestic seawall to the everyday buzz of city life, [Fitzgerald] captures the essence of Vancouver and its neighbourhoods with colour and humour.”—MONTECRISTO Magazine
