Sketchbook recording a visit to Egypt and Jordan

Architects often keep journals and sketchbooks on their travels in which they can sketch interesting architectural details that they encounter or note down ideas that are inspired by their unfamiliar surroundings. This volume contains travel notes, colourful sketches of buildings, people and animals seen during two visits to Egypt and Jordan by the architects Denis and Mary Mason Jones in the 1980s and 1990s. The sketchbook also contains photographs of Denis and his wife during these two trips. These pages feature the stepped pyramid at Sakhara.
