Book Report: St. Louis in Watercolor by Marilynne Bradley (2008)
This is a collection of watercolors by local artist Marilynne Bradley. Each depicts a notable landmark in the St. Louis area, most of which remain. Additionally, each watercolor comes with a bit of the history of the depicted location; Ms. Bradley is also active in the local historical society, so she brings that bit of knowledge to bear.

I paid full price for it in the local bookshop; if I'd planned better, I probably could have gotten an autographed copy from Bradley. I'd originally thought I'd bought the book as a gift for my mother-in-law, but I'd only had the notion to do so, so I got it for me instead and will share it.

Do I recommend it? I guess, if you're into looking at watercolors or want a little trip through some history vignettes.
