A Lakeland Sketchbook

Series: Lakeland Sketchbooks (1)
This first collection of drawings by A. Wainwright was originally published in the late 1960s. In typically forthright language, the author called it his private rebellion against 'acceptance as art of poverty-stricken and barren inspiration and rank bad execution'. The sketchbook contains 80 intricate 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.
