From Penzance to Penrith, Talbot and Whiteman have explored the country region by region, documenting landmarks and scenery. They have put their unique talents to work to accurately convey the spirit of a place: whether it be the lush landscape, fine architecture and intriguing mythology of Wessex; the high peaks, wild fells, spectacular waterfalls and secluded valleys of the Lake District; or the wooded hills, open heathland and coastal plains of the southern counties. Rob Talbot's stunning display of landscape photography is perfectly complemented by Robin Whiteman's text which concisely describes every aspect of a region -- from its history, literary and artistic connections, to its geography, geology, architecture, agriculture and local customs.

A lengthy working partnership between Talbot and photographer Robin Whiteman has produced a series of books celebrating radiant English scenes. In their latest collaboration, these two discerning guides pool their vast knowledge to cover the country from Lindisfarne Castle in Northumberland to the prehistoric monuments of Land's End, Cornwall. Even as pollution, litter, and real estate development threaten to endanger the natural beauty of England's countryside, there remains a great deal to be admired. Distinguished by rich tapestries of color, Whiteman's landscape photographs record the implied textures of craggy bluffs, moors bedecked in heather, and still, glassy lakes. Talbot's text interweaves the fabric of myth with historical fact to provide appealing narratives that further describe each inviting photographic vignette. Alice Joyce
