Adults are invited to express their sense of color and creativity in this book of lovingly detailed drawings of San Francisco's Victorian-era buildings. In pen and ink, artist Shirley Salzman depicts a spectrum of styles within the period of Queen Victoria's reign from 1837 to 1901. The black-and-white sketches are printed on high-quality watercolor paper in an open-flat format and can be framed as they are or imaginatively embellished.
Shirley Salzman is a lifelong resident of the San Francisco Bay Area and studied art at UC Berkeley in the 1960s. She has worked in numerous media and has a passion for pen and ink and houses. Most days, she can be found painting and drawing in her studio north of the city.
