Working North Norfolk: An Artist's Story
Working North Norfolk: An Artist's Story
by Jane Hodgson
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £19.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Paintings, 7 Jan. 2014
This is a beautifully produced book full of gritty paintings depicting the working life along the North Norfolk coast. Every page has paintings and sketches and the artist's own text definitely makes this not only an art book, but an interesting read.

This will make a great present for anyone interested in art and the UK's rural industries. It's great to hear that these precarious industries are still thriving in places. Learning about some of the characters that cut the reedbeds or go out fishing for crabs and mussels in all weathers is fascinating.

5.0 out of 5 stars Relentlessly Brilliant, 9 July 2008
This review is from: Book of Love (Paperback)
Beautifully, intelligently and tenderly written. Compelling and fascinating.
It really is a book about love, with all its horrible realisms, agonies, anguish and pain. Hot cakes and wine, medieval Italian power struggles, unrequited love, terrifying characters, seduction and lust - it's got the lot! And it's all completely and utterly believable. This book should wins prizes!
