Alan Marshall has a passion for art, landscape and natural history. Together with his wife, Marion, he also runs a small independent publisher based in Norfolk who specialise in beautifully designed art books.
This volume is a rare treat. It examines the county of Suffolk through the work of 38 different printmakers, each bringing a distinctive and individual vision to portrayals of their favourite places. Suffolk’s varied landscape; the winding rivers, heathlands, salt marsh, characterful villages and crumbling cliffs have attracted so many artists to the county and here we see their inspiration translated into a wonderfully varied collection of prints. Alongside the pictures is a commentary packed with information on the background history, nature and artistic connections to each part of the county, together with insights into the techniques of printmaking. From places like Flatford and Aldeburgh, which attract visitors by the thousand, to the little known villages and byways of rural Suffolk, this is the perfect book to open your eyes to the beauty of our neighbouring county.
