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.

About this Author

She received a BFA in Visual Art at the University of British Columbia, spending her third year at L'Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris, where she honed her drawing skills. She then completed her undergraduate and masters degrees in Architecture at Dalhousie University in Halifax. Emma's first book, the bestselling Hand Drawn Halifax, garnered attention in her chosen home city, winning the Atlantic Independent Booksellers' Choice award and the Coast's Best of Halifax award for Best Book in 2016.

"The immediacy of her sketches and endearing subject matter will appeal to any inquisitive armchair traveler or urban sketcher."

"A great gift for anyone summering on Nova Scotia's South Shore. Certainly every bed-and-breakfast in the area should have these on their lending shelf."

"Through her vivid descriptions, one can almost smell the flowers as they sit on the windowsill and feel the rain on one's face. It makes me want to go to the places she describes to experience the things she has and feel them for myself."

"FitzGerald's intimate, detailled lines remain packed full of sharp observation and casual charm."

"FitzGerald has carved out her own niche as an artist who draws cities and buildings and special places, as a chronicler of the history of communities, a teller of stories of lives spent in particular places."

"Here's the sequel to author and artist Emma Fitzgerald's first book Hand Drawn Halifax ... This is yet another wonderful book, one that I can see myself picking up again in the future often to enjoy."
