A celebration of one of England's most alluring and picturesque regions, the Lake District Sketchbook is packed with over 200 beautiful line and watercolour illustrations of some of the author's favourite places in the magnificent English lakeland. The illustrations are accompanied by historical footnotes, quirky facts, some easy walks, identification of mountain scenes, a gazetteer and, most importantly, where to park and get a cup of tea! The Lake District is Britain's premier tourist region, attracting visitors from throughout the world, which ensures a huge market for the Lake District Sketchbook, which is both a useful guidebook and ideal souvenir.

He has also written and illustrated the definitive guide to two long-distance walks across Lakeland: The Cumbria Way and The Allerdale Ramble. A unique book, in handy A5 format, beautifully bound and printed in colour throughout, the Lake District Sketchbook, along with the Cotswolds Sketchbook, are the first titles in a new series celebrating the most beautiful regions of Britain.

Lake District Sketchbook Reviews

Beautiful sketches are the main feature of this lovely book. It makes you want to pick up your sketchbook and go. There is also plenty of useful information about the lakes. A joy to look at, and to look at again. (D.J. Thornton, Amazon) Nice watercolour images showing clearly what you need to look for, supported by information written from an individual point of view. I understand that Jim grew up in the Lake District and it shows. Lots of useful info and a portable format, but it looks really good as well. (Pat, Amazon)
