Brian Cook's Landscapes of Britain

I stumbled across this beautiful book yesterday called 'Brian Cook's Landscapes of Britain' at the London Transport Museum shop and decided on a whim to buy it. I'm really glad I did, it's a fantastic little book full of some really stunning images. 

'The illustrations of Brian Cook from the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s are iconic. Showcasing British life from the Scottish Islands to London Markets, from Wiltshire farms to the rugged Lake District, this is the most comprehensive collection of his work to date. It features quintessential images of  Britain, it's villages, castles, churches, cottages and countryside, revealing the timeless beauty of the British landscape.'
