A Picture Of Britain

A Picture Of Britain

A Picture of Britain A Picture of Britain is a celebration of the British landscape and the art that it has inspired, from Constable to Lowry, from Turner to Nash. Written by David Dimbleby and leading experts on British art from Tate, it is beautifully illustrated with landscape photography and great works of art. From the slopes of Snowdonia to the industrial Black Country. from the grandeur of the Scottish Highlands to the meadows of Suffolk, the British landscape has inspired artists and writers for generations. But the authors show that it is only in the last two hundred years, stirred by art and poetry, that large numbers of people have sought out and visited wilder and more rugged vistas. In paintings, photographs and words, this remarkable book captures our rich cultural heritage, creating for the reader A Picture of Britain.

The Most Beautiful Villages of England (Most Beautiful Villages) Villages are the very embodiment of Englishness. Honey coloured cottages from peaceful Cornwall communities; splendid thatched roofs sweeping over eaves and windows in the villages of Hampshire; half-timbering, flint and limestone giving Suffolk hamlets their characteristic appearance; and limestone, sandstone and millstone grit giving a darker look to those of Yorkshire, Durham and Northumberland. This volume records the richness and diversity of the English village in photographs and commentary. Grouped by area and sub-divided by county, this is a celebration of the most beautiful villages of England.

Coastline UK: Amazing Views from the Air Apparently anonymous mudflats, dunes and scrubland become the source of strange, exotic hues and patterns when viewed directly from above. Small harbours yield complex herringbone arrangements of elegantly narrow boats. Even container ports can become semi-abstract assemblages of multi-coloured units. And familiar landmarks take on a wholly new and fascinating aura.
