Rain Later, Good Summary


Rain Later, Good: Illustrating the Shipping Forecast by Peter Collyer

Rain Later, Good is the award winning story of Peter Collyer's extraordinary journey around the Shipping Forecast areas and has been a bestseller since first publication. The artist's brilliant and detailed paintings reproduced actual size, offer a series of images which help conjure up the most mythical locations, whilst his delightful idiosyncratic text provides a wealth of fascinating insights. He introduces us to the people who live and work in these areas, and passes on snippets of tantalising information to give a powerful impression of the place and convey a real feeling of being there. The beautiful paintings which come from Peter Collyer's travels truly capture the spirit of these wild and isolated spots. This is a book to be treasured, and its reissue will be welcomed by Peter's many admirers. 'A very remarkable painter. His work is simply stunning with an observed intensity which makes him very special indeed.' Chris Beetles in The Daily Telegraph 'The most delightful and unexpected book I've encountered this year...a wonderful book.' John Naughton, The Times
