Item description for A Line in the Water by Norman Ackroyd & Douglas Dunn...
This beautifully produced book brings together Norman Ackroyd (b. 1938), one of Britain's foremost landscape artists, and the award-winning poet and novelist Douglas Dunn in a collaboration that takes the reader around the coastline of Britain through word and image. The journey begins with an introduction by Dunn, who looks at the rich literary and artistic tradition of artists and writers who have chronicled the variety and splendor of the British coastline. Dunn's poems find a visual response in the subtlety of Ackroyd's aquatints, which reflect the wide range of landscape to be found along the coast of Britain.
