Tunnicliffe's Countryside

C. F. Tunnicliffe, Other Clive Holloway Books $0 (216p) ISBN 978-0-907745-02-0
In his lifetime, Charles Tunnicliffe illustrated more than 80 books on nature and the British countryside; in addition to bird portraiture, he did illustrations for the journal Country Life. Niall, his friend and collaborator (The Way of a Countryman, has chosen representative examples of Tunnicliffe's work with excerpts from the books. It's an irresistible combination of superb nature writing and elegant interpretations by a master artist. Here are pieces from Henry Williamson's classic Tarka the Otter, H. E. Bates's In the Heart of the Country, Negley Farson's Going Fishing, Alison Uttley's books for children, plus Tunnicliffe's own Shorelands Summer and My Country Book. Both text and illustrations will appeal to anyone who savors the outdoors. (April 22)
