From Here and There

A captivating view of the world through the memories, eyes and sketchbook of a renowned architect.

In watercolours and words, South African–born A.J. Diamond gives a rare glimpse into the sights that informed his life and career on three continents. From childhood and youth in South Africa to education in England and the United States and finally to life in Toronto, Diamond has kept a sketchbook, paints and a pen at hand. Wandering and wondering, this book gives visual and narrative illustrations of how he has viewed the world he has travelled.

“Simply, I love this book. We are welcomed into [Diamond’s] way of seeing so gracefully. Absolutely lovely and absolutely intelligent. And, best of all, the combination of the written and the visual is intensely moving.” Anne Michaels, author of Fugitive Pieces
