Description - A Line in the Water by Norman Ackroyd
This beautifully produced collaboration between Norman Ackroyd CBE RA, one of Britain's foremost landscape artists, and the award-winning poet Douglas Dunn takes the reader on a journey around some of the wilder coastal regions of Britain. Especially commissioned for this book, Douglas Dunns evocative poems, whose subject-matter passes lightly from the humdrum to the sublime, impart his wonderment at the natural world, a sense of the elemental remoteness of these windswept coasts, and his companionable reflections on the passage of centuries. In his almost obsessive explorations of the farthest reaches of the British Isles, Norman Ackroyd captures the meeting of land and sea in atmospheric aquatint. His work and Dunns complement each other in a memorable fusion of word and image that attests to the power of place and reflects the extraordinary diversity of Britains littoral margins.
