This book is a joy. It is a joy to touch, to hold, to read and to study the most excellent reproductions of Bewick's tiny works. I live close to Bewick's birthplace and this book has inspired me with a new ardour for the Tyne Valley, its people and Natural History and, of course, the prodigious talents of Thomas Bewick and family.

I'm pleading a special interest in this - I volunteer at Cherryburn in Northumberland which is the small National Trust property where Bewick was born and grew up and which inspired his love of nature, so you might say i've already got an interest in him. But you don't need existing interest or knowledge to love this book. Jenny Uglow gives you both the man and the artist; but also some fascinating and brilliant social history relating to Bewick's period. It's very engaging, very informative and Bewick's engravings are liberally dotted through the book. You might find a magnifying glass useful - I actually bought one to see the detail in these tiny representations and it's well worth the time spent. Lovely book.

Fascinating book with wonderful descriptions of life in Thomas Bewick's time. Some of my ancestors lived in the same area as Bewick so gave a wonderful insight as to what life may have been like for them.

Bewick was a master craftsman of his time in the wood engraving business. This book gives an excellent portrayal of his life and I would highly recommend it.
