WILD: Tales From Early Medieval Britain is written and illustrated by Somerset-based historian and printmaker Amy Jeffs, the best-selling author of STORYLAND.
The seven chapters of WILD – Earth, Ocean, Forest, Beast, Fen, Catastrophe and Paradise – blend reflections of travels through fen, forest and cave, with retelling of medieval texts that offer rich depictions of the natural world. It is a book that will reconnect, engross and indulge the reader in wild landscapes, to encourage reflection on our current relationship with nature.
Amy’s wood engraved illustrations throughout the book are reproduced to scale so they appear as they would have been printed on a traditional press.
WILD is a beautiful book, inside and out. The perfect gift – for a friend, relative, or yourself!
