Third Lakeland Sketchbook

These five collections of intricate pen-and-ink drawings by A. Wainwright - author of the legendary pictorial guides to the Lakeland Fells - were first published in the late sixties and early seventies. In typically forthright language, the author called the first of them his private rebellion against 'acceptance as art of poverty-stricken and barren inspiration and rank bad execution'. Each sketchbook contains eighty delightful pen-and-ink drawings of Lakeland scenes. Each drawing is accompanied by a simple map to identify the location of the viewpoint in relation to its surroundings.

About the Author

Born in Blackburn in 1907, Alfred Wainwright left school at the age of 13. A holiday at the age of 23 kindled a life long love affair with the Lake District. Following a move to Kendal in 1941 Wainwright devoted every spare minute of his days to researching and compiling the original seven Pictorial Guides.
