Returning to update “SINGAPORE, Sketches of the Lion City” artist and
illustrator, Lorette E. Roberts, was once again struck by the variety of flowers
and trees and how naturally they bloom in modern Singapore. Now, Supertrees,
Gardens by the Bay and Marina Bay Sands are part of the landscape, having
“grown” since her last visit. In her inimitable and unmistakable style, Lorette
has now included these along with the other famous sights in this exciting
colourful new edition.
These sights include Raffles Hotel, Boat Quay, Orchard Road, Sentosa and our UNESCO Botanic Gardens. Roberts has captured all the varied architectural styles prevalent locally, from elegant shophouses, Colonial bungalows and neighbourhood districts to the
refurbished Fullerton Heritage.
Lorette’s sharp eye is trained to spot the unusual: ancient houses on stilts,
a tree walk, organic gardens, the old-world charm of Tiong Bahru, Ang Mo
Kio’s Sunday Bird Club, a tiger-car replica, ethnic fabric designs, hedgehog
pastries and vibrant street art. For a fun activity, try spotting her trademark snail hidden somewhere on every page!
