Ways to See Great Britain is an inspiring visual adventure
from the artist who gave us Ways to Walk in London

Driven by curiosity, restlessness and a desire to better understand her own country, artist Alice Stevenson spent two years exploring and drawing Great Britain.

With an eye for the odd and an antenna for the unexpectedly beautiful, she documented her slow, attentive forays. Her journeying was wide: steam trains in Snowdonia, art galleries on remove Scottish islands, Kent coastlines, Dorset villages, East Anglian saltmarshes, the erstwhile utopias of Harlow and Portmeirion and the wild fells of eastern Cumbria. Yet she found many hidden delights in the dense populations of cities, from Hull and Plymouth, to Belfast and Edinburgh.

The result is a book celebrating detail, of landscape and architecture, and creativity, an essential human urge. A rich, artistic journey through a land deep in natural and man-made puzzles and wonders.

Here we offer a preview of this beautiful new book, published by September Publishing. A pleasing size and shape with spot-UV and spot-gloss on the cover – not to mention gorgeous colour illustrations throughout – this book is a truly dreamy object. (And we can vouch for that great new book smell as well! Mmm!)
