Bristol and Beyond: Fifty five relief engravings

£17.50

Description

Bristol and Beyond is an eagerly awaited collection of Trevor Haddrell’s engravings of familiar and no-so-familiar Bristol scenes. These range in size and complexity from an award-winning panorama taking in the view from Zero Degrees across Colston Street to the elegant simplicity of a series of evening scenes of Baltic Wharf, with the Cumberland Basin warehouses silhouetted against the fading sky.Other beautiful images include a pagoda-like University Tower scaffolded for repair, the mesmerising shapes of Christmas Steps climbing to St. Michael’s Hill and the wide-sweeping King Street looking every inch a stage set. Beyond Bristol, an elegant Clevedon Pier, Clevedon Court, along with the little-known Nailsea Court, fine buildings in Thornbury and the ornate turrets, gable ends and chimney stacks of that great Victorian pile, Tyntesfield, complete a wonderful journey in and around the city. 245 x 265mm, 112pp Hardback ISBN 13: 978-1-904537-61-8
