The book contains just over twenty watercolours, each beautifully reproduced on its own page and each accompanied by a commentary of about 200 words. The text is quite relaxed and makes observations about where the images were painted and what was happening in Ravilious' life at the time. Some of the comments are rather wonderful - one image is of a vicarage and the accompanying paragraphs point out that when Ravilious introduced himself to the new vicar he was delighted to discover him burning the temperance hymn books of his predecessor. By taking a playful stance the text manages to make the pictures seem more personal and, as a result, it allows Ravilious the man to shine through.Read more ›
