Sketch by Sketch Along Nova Scotia’s South Shore
An appealing narrative of encounters with the unique places and people of the South Shore, with Emma Fitzgerald's unique art and storytelling
Just as Hand Drawn Halifax was "a love letter to the city", Fitzgerald's new book takes readers on informal road trips along one of the most renowned parts of Canada.
As Emma Fitzgerald sketches, residents of these communities share their insights and histories. They appear in her whimsical drawings, which portray Nova Scotia's South Shore in every season. You will meet a fourth-generation female sail maker in Second Peninsula, learn the recipe for summertime rose vinegar, and discover how winter Bluenose dark rum is made in Lunenburg. You'll make a springtime visit to Birchtown's Black Loyalist Heritage Centre, and escape the cool autumn weather inside the Sipuke'l Mi'kmaq art gallery in Liverpool.
