Product Description

Review

Anyone who has grown increasingly impressed by Macfarlane's nature writing over the past decade will feel instantly at home in this slight collaboration with writer Dan Richards and illustrator Stanley Donwood ... With Donwood's ghostly, Hansel and Gretel-esque illustrations peppering the prose, Holloway is undeniably a gorgeous package. Even though it takes less than half an hour to read, the subtle call to revel in the wonder of the natural world lasts much longer. (Ben East Observer)

An impressionistic piece of landscape writing, Holloway evokes the sense that time is densely layered in these secret lanes; many people have trodden here, and their ghosts are still apparent in the deep tree-shaded paths. (Carl Wilkinson Financial Times)

A perfect miniature prose poem of a book, beautifully printed and published. (William Dalrymple Observer Books of the Year)

The pleasures herein are almost intangible and they're certainly initially fleeting. Yet these pellucid tales of Dorset's deep-set lanes and their duvets of foliage will stay with you long into the summer dusk and may even encourage you to embark on your own investigation of England's ancient arteries. (Paul Connolly Metro)

Glorious ... endearingly open-hearted. (Barnaby Rogerson Sunday Telegraph Books of the Year)

This beautifully produced book is part tribute to the late Roger Deakin, part trafelogue, and bearing in mind the Faber imprint, part poetic evocation of the 'Holloways' of south Dorset, infused with Macfarlane's sensitivity to nature and beautifully illustrated by Stanley Donwood. (Michael Conaghan Belfast Telegraph)

Book Description

Holloway, by Robert Macfarlane and Dan Richards, is a eerily beautiful piece of nature writing, with Stanley Donwood's spectacular etchings of woodland scenes.

I was drawn to Robert MacFarlane's writing via Melissa Harrison. This, like others by the author, is a truly beautiful look at the heart of natural England. A long poem to the clandestine paths trod in ancient times past. The illustrations have a mystical air and words and image knit together a sacred slim volume. A book to come back to again and again like the cycle of walkers on the soil.

Don't know why this got published at all. It includes Macfarlane's notes and jottings that went into other work, one b&w illustration that's repeated in different sizes through the book, and self indulgent nonsense from his companions. Forget this one and get Macfarlane's other books which are worth the money.
