Miscellaneous Book: The Wainwrights in Colour: Andy Beck

£39.00

PLEASE NOTE: this book is very heavy (it weighs over 2 Kg), so there is a delivery charge of £3.50 

The book measures 327mm x 218mm x 32mm in landscape format. It is hardback with 360 full colour pages.

This book is truly a labour of love, much as the original series of Wainwright books were - 
a unique project and one which lovers of the Lake District will treasure for a long time to come.

The book of the successful “Wainwrights in Colour” project by Andy Beck is now available.
It features all of the 214 Lakeland Fells and all of the 1500+ watercolour sketches which Andy has produced to complete this body of work.
Andy details the differences in the scenes from how they were when A.W. illustrated them in his guides.

Each fell is featured is illustrated with all of the sketches and short descriptive notes.
Included is a 17 minute DVD on how Andy completed just one of the fells in this major undertaking.

The book was launched on 5 May 2017. It will have a one off print run of only 5000 copies, there will be no following print run.
All of the sketches from the project feature in the book. There are 360 pages in full colour. The book is printed and produced in the UK.


Over the past ten years Teesdale-based artist Andy Beck has been totally involved in this major project, where he has produced watercolour sketches of every single view drawn by Alfred Wainwright in his seven Pictorial Guides to the Lakeland Fells.

 

As the book is filled with the 1500 sketches and relevant text there was not enough room to go into detail as to how Andy went about the process of obtaining the references for the project.
As he considered that this back story would be of interest to show the complexities of the challenge he decided to produce a short film of the process.
Over the past eight years Alan Fentiman has been recording the story and his film is on a DVD. The DVD is only available with the book, and comes in a sleeve inside the back cover.

 

Limited edition - only 5000 copies.

To quote Andy, "When I looked at producing The Wainwrights in Colour Book I didn’t want to be seen to be milking the “Wainwright” name for ever and a day so I was always intending to produce a book of a single limited run.
5000 was a figure that I came up with that was both economical to print and enough to give lovers of the Lakeland Fells a chance to obtain a copy.
I know that some people assume that if by some slim chance this edition sells out I will be producing another print run, believe me, this will not happen, once the 5000 copies have been sold there will not be a follow up print run……ever."
