In the introduction to his Lake District Sketch book, Jim writes:
“The mountains are high . . . and the lakes are large in British terms, but on the world stage they’re mere molehills and ponds. It’s the variety and concentration of good things packed into such a small area that makes the Lake District so special. You never have to travel far to be moved by something.”
Jim has just finished a similar guide to the Cotswolds and is currently roaming the streets of London, working on his project - “London Sketchbook: A Pictorial Celebration”
On the shelves of Broad How, you will find three of his now out of print guides to the Lake District: Lakeland Villages; Lakeland Towns; and Lakeland Panoramas - all full of his clever illustrations and observations.
