All the Buildings in Sydney is a love letter to author James Gulliver Hancock's home town of Sydney, told through his unique and charming drawings of the city's diverse architectural styles and cityscape. His buildings are colourful and full of fun and offbeat details, yet he successfully captures the technical elements and the essence of Sydney architecture that makes it such a unique and beautiful city. Organised by neighbourhoods, the book features iconic Sydney buildings, such as the Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge. Also presented are the everyday buildings that make up Sydney life - the terrace houses in Paddington, the bungalows by the beaches and the beautiful sandstone buildings from Sydneys 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 harbour city.
