5.0 out of 5 stars A breath of frest air, 15 Jun 2011
This review is from: Rock and Roll Tourist (Paperback)
Rock and Roll Tourist is a book I struggled to put down. The eclectic choice in bands that he followed and his witty and dry sense of diction drive you from Kiss/Aerosmith to BB King, not to mention the non-appearance of Eminem. Forbes shows a real sense of diversity in his musical taste and his chosen vocation. The endorsements by the musicians themselves highlight Forbes' talent at capturing the bands and the moment.
This is a must read for any music fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars An essential collection of watercolours, 15 Jun 2011
I first came across Birds and Flowers when looking through a friends book collection and was astounded by the vibrant and beautiful watercolours.
The attention to detail and variety in the colour and tone, from print-to-print, blew me away. The information Alder provides gives a real insight into the birds, flowers and their surroundings, and also projects his own love for ornithology and nature. Over the two volumes, a real sense of development can be seen in the watercolours and the balance between foreground and background is carried of superbly.
I would recommend this collection to anyone, whether a keen ornithologist, or simply a lover of watercolours, as an essential addition to their book shelf.
