England in Particular: A Celebration of the Commonplace,
Sorry, this item is now out of stock.
Common Ground is a charity that has pioneered the notion of 'local distinctiveness': written by two of the founders, this book is a celebration of that principle. It presents an A–Z of the landscapes, buildings, people and wildlife and the 'conspiracy of nature and culture' that make each place unique. From Abbeys to Zig Zags, via Hare Pie Scrambling, Synagogues and Well-Dressing, in entries often accompanied by woodcut illustrations, the book explores 'the extraordinary richness of our everyday surroundings'.
