This book exceeded my expectations. It contains page after page of lavish illustrations of Mark Hearld's work and his own interesting comments on how he works and what inspires him. It also contains reproductions of the work of his heroes,Bawden, Ravilious,Piper, Palmer. The whole book is beautifully designed and presented, a joy to handle and read. For anyone interested in the folk art tradition,interested in collage, linocut, lithography, pottery,fabric design,illustration, this book is an absolute must.

The parcel arrived in good time and was very well packaged.

This book gives you a great insight into Marks way of working, his background, and his own sources of inspiration. A good selection of his work graces the pages, the book is full of information about the various processes he uses, with explanations for those like myself who appreciate the work but are not familiar with the technique. All aspects of printmaking are described - collage, lithograph, linocuts.

This is not a how-to book by any means, but such a beautiful read, wonderful illustrations, and an honest discussion of his work by the man himself. I enjoyed it immensley and will refer back to it over and over again.

Only recently been aware of Mark Hearld's work as an artist, and been most impressed with his originality with collage and sense of colour. I like many of the artists he references as inspiring him, like Ravilious, Bawden and Nash. I like too the tradition of journeyman artists, like Barbara Jones, and English popular art, of which he is part. The fact that his subject is often wildlife, birds in particular, makes this very appealing as well. The book is beautifully put together and really gives a vibrant sense of this artist's work. Highly recommended.

I am just getting back into my art. After a long break where time didn't allow creativity, I find myself looking at Mark Hearlds work with different eyes. I'm blown away by how much detail goes into each picture. And yet when you break it down it's doable!!! A super coffee table book to just lose yourself in over a coffee. Worth every penny.

This book is a riot of colour, the reproductions are wonderful and to anyone familiar with Mark's work a real treat. Get busy with the scissors and make your own collage based on his ideas - while it's not a techniques manual there's lots of information to get you started.
