Leicester - Paintings and sketches by Douglas Smith

A book by one of Leicester’s leading architects and artists will not only bring delight to all those who know and love Leicester, but also hope to the region’s cancer sufferers, since all profits from sales will go to the charity Hope Against Cancer, formerly known as The Hope Foundation for Cancer Research.

Professor Sir Peter Bell writes:

“This book, with its wonderful sketches of the old and new buildings in Leicester as the city heads into the future, should be a must for all those who live and work here. When you buy this book, you will not only be getting a unique insight into the architecture of this city, but also helping in a real way in the fight against cancer in Leicestershire and Rutland”.

Lord Attenborough CBE wrote:

Lord Attenborough wrote in the Foreword to the original Leicester book, which forms part of the new publication:

“Douglas Smith has captured a love of Leicester which reflects its historic past, rejoices in the diversity of its present and heralds its optimism for the future”.
