Norman Ackroyd (born 1938) has depicted the coastal landscapes of the British Isles for over half a century. Often traveling to remote and weather-beaten outposts, he makes watercolor sketches on various paper stocks all cut to the same size and clipped to a board so that he can work in high winds and at sea. Many of these have been reproduced in two bestselling publications, A Shetland Notebook and A Hebridean Notebook. This new group, which continues the series, includes 40 watercolors from Ackroyd's journeys down Ireland's west coast. From Malin to Mizen via the cliffs of Inishmore, the rocky outcrops of Puffin Island and the emerald depths of Roaringwater Bay, Ackroyd records the Irish coast in all its rugged beauty. The book concludes with a gazetteer by the artist, providing fascinating snippets of information about his locations and revealing the extent of Ireland's geological diversity and ancient cultural traditions.
