Travels in newsprint: Welcome to Leipzig

Leipzig1

When illustrator Rachel McParland visited Leipzig, she filled her sketchbook with her favourite aspects of the city: 'the buildings, the history, the bikes, and even the pretzels!' She used the illustrations in her response to a Student YCN Brief for Airbnb encouraging people to 'belong anywhere' — and chose a digital tabloid newspaper to showcase her work.

'I wanted to show Leipzig off, show it as the vibrant colourful city that it truly is,' she tells us.  'I created a series of watercolour illustrations of all the things I felt people should know about or pay attention to in Leipzig.' The result is Welcome to Leipzig — a lovely travel journal pointing out the type of delightful landmarks that an M. Sasek book would celebrate (the zoo, the choir hall, Bach's burial place).
