The book’s launch coincides with a sold out night of talks at THE HOUSE OF ILLUSTRATION where three of the contributors (industry veteran JOHN VERNON LORD, PHIL CARTER of the award winning design and branding agency Carter Wong and hand surgeon DONALD SAMMUT)  will go into depth about their unique sketchbook practices. As well as having a chance to buy a signed copy of KEEPING SKETCHBOOKS, limited numbers of ZOOTIME- a collection of Martin’s reportage zoo sketches created especially for the event- will be available with the book.
