MEDIA REVIEWS
'[Renton's] distinctive drawings - specific and spot on - show her skills as a careful and very thoughtful observer of people and of human nature... A Field Guide is the perfect prescription for dark winter days and an antidote to despondency.' -- The Scottish Review
'What a lovely book. Gentle, almost tender humour, but there is a cutting edge too!' -- Stanley Johnson
'These drawings reveal the British character as we have always suspected it to be, even if we don't quite dare to admit it. In a long tradition going back to Osbert Lancaster and Max Beerbohm, Chelsea Renton captures in a few lines the essence of the people she draws. Sharp but affectionate, always revealing, and often very funny.' -- David Dimbleby
