Publisher's description: For decades, master printmaker Norman Ackroyd has been fascinated by the British coastline. Gorgeously printed on thick paper, A Hebridean Notebook presents his watercolors of this archipelago just northwest of mainland Scotland. Inhabited since prehistoric times, some of the Hebridean islands are now deserted and rarely visited. These original plein-air watercolor sketches, some produced under arduous conditions of weather and sea from a small fishing boat, have provided the basis for many of his most memorable etchings. A gazetteer at the back contains the artist's thoughts and further information about the locations of the sketches -- and the prevailing weather conditions under which they were made.
