"It is such a relief when a book appears that reminds us why real books are necessary. Sketches is a book that has a weight and texture, inside and out...In Sketches, written words and drawn-and-painted images combine to make a complete three-dimensional picture."

"Sketches gathers [Diamond's] recollections and visual renderings of some of the crucial places in his lifeÖItís a dizzying tour, the highlights of 60 years distilled on the page. The drawings are technically strong but unexceptional as artwork. Whatís interesting is the way Diamond paints like an architect, his eye reducing buildings and landscapes to solids and voids, planes and volumes."
