We loved how the Venice cards came out back in December and wanted to create a whole series of cards from travel sketches. These are all of my personal drawings from a trip in 2010 to the Veneto in Italy.
The first drawing is of a narrow set of stairs wedged between two buildings in Vicenza. This is a pretty normative condition in the area where the city grew organically. The second is of a church campanile on the island of Burano in the Venetian Lagoon. The tower leans so far forward and it can be seen from almost any point on the small island. Burano is know for it’s colorful houses which helped the fisherman identify their street from the canals, but it is also home to the other iconic tower of Italy.
