This is such a find! For anyone interested in Leeds and Liverpool Canal History, it's detailed and colourful, opening up a very individual style of decoration, so different from the usual roses and castles. Mike Clark explains the scrolls and geometric designs that were lavished on the barges, captured from an era that almost slipped away. The book captures the images of historic boatyards,barges and their kit, through photos, drawings and diagrams. Read it or just look at the pictures, and be inspired.
