Land Marks and Sea Wings by John Busby

Landscape and birds have been twin passions in John Busby's life for more than 70 years. In Land Marks and Sea Wings, John's paintings and drawings spanning more than half a century are accompanied by his perceptive writings. From the Yorkshire of his youth John takes us to his adopted Scotland and on his worldwide travels in search of the wildlife and living landscapes which have inspired his art. The book ends with a trip to the Galapagos Islands where 180 years ago Charles Darwin found a key to unlock the mysteries of evolution, and where today we can still marvel at the extraordinary diversity of the natural world.

160 pages (300 x 250 mm). Colour illustrations and drawings throughout.
