For hundreds of years Bali has fascinated and charmed newcomers, just as it captivated the English watercolour artist Graham Byfield when he first visited the island. In this new compact paperback edition of the best-selling Bali Sketchbook, the artist makes evident through his paintings and pencil sketches his excitement of discovering a whole new world with an alluring landscape, startling architecture and vibrant culture. Following the Balinese view of the tripartite nature of things - explained in the introduction - the book is divided into three parts. The ‘World of Origins’ tours the mountains and lakes, with the temples and villages among them, whilst ‘The Hand-Made World’ takes us through agriculture, architecture, art, handicrafts and markets. ‘The Sea Coast’, the final part, explores the traditional fishing villages and modern beach resorts, contrasting the old way of life and the new.
