Wainwright Memories. SIGNED.
Wainwright Memories chronicles three little-known stories involving Alfred Wainwright that occurred over three consecutive years, 1988-90. Written by Chris and based on reminiscences by publisher Andrew Nichol and includes illustrative maps by Chris Jesty.
Each copy will be SIGNED by the author (with the latest dozen copies additionally signed by Andrew Nichol and Chris Jesty).
The Scotland Trip: Alfred Wainwright loved Scotland and visited regularly. A close friendship had developed with his publishing manager, Andrew Nichol, and Wainwright decided to invite him on his next holiday, along with their wives.
The Unfinished Book: Wainwright started work on a new book to complement his best-selling guidebook, A Coast to Coast Walk. It was intended for those who prefer to meander and sightsee rather than tackle the hills, but would it ever come to fruition?
The Langdale Shoot: Andrew wanted some new photographs of Wainwright to be preserved as part of his legacy. Their good friend Ken Shepherd would be the photographer for one of Wainwright’s final photo shoots in the Lake District.
Presented in a laminated dust jacket, the book comprises 220 pages printed on high-quality photographic paper. It is beautifully bound in real cloth with gold foil blocking.
The book is now available for a reduced price leading up to Christmas, making this book the perfect festive gift for any Wainwright enthusiast.
