A celebration of one of Britain's most beautiful and beloved regions, the Cotswold Sketchbook is packed with over 200 evocative line and watercolour illustrations of some of the author's favourite villages and towns in this charming part of England. The illustrations are accompanied by historical footnotes, quirky facts, a gazetteer - and, most importantly, where to park and get a cup of tea! The Cotswolds is one of Britain's premier tourist areas, drawing visitors from all over the world, which ensures a huge market for the Cotswold Sketchbook, which is both a useful guidebook and a perfect souvenir. Jim Watson is an experienced illustrator and writer with three best-selling, award-winning books on the English Lake District to his credit. A unique book, in handy hardback A5 format, beautifully bound and printed in colour throughout, the Cotswold Sketchbook, along with the Lake District Sketchbook, are the first titles in a new series celebrating the most beautiful regions of Britain. Casebound and printed in colour.
