A Week on Scilly
by Sue Lewington
8.99

ISBN: 978 185022 198 2
210x147mm - 64 pages

In this book Sue Lewington has returned to her beloved islands. Her first book "Sketches of Scilly" sold over 8000 copies; since then she has published a further fifteen books including sketchbooks of St Ives, Falmouth, Fowey, Salcombe and Tresco Abbey Garden.

This new collection was drawn in the space of one week only during June 2004; starting on her own island of St Martins on Monday 7th and finishing on St Helens on Sunday 13th. Each island was sketched in a day including all five inhabited islands plus Samson and St Helens.

The seventy sketches were all completed as Sue walked round the islands - so they are a spontaneous reaction to what she saw. Readers will share her enthusiasm for these "fortunate islands" and warm to the immediacy of this living snapshot of the Scillies caught one week in June.

As always the sketches come with Sue's highly individualistic quirky running commentary. Full colour throughout.

245x190mm - 136 pages

Heligan Harvest is the culmination of two years work. Developed from an initial idea that it would be wonderful to record the productive gardens through the year. This book is the result of close collaboration between Sue Lewington, the artist, the publishers and Candy Smit of Heligan.  Without the wholehearted support of the Heligan team and in particular the gardeners Sue would have been unable to create this vivid and intimate portrait of the gardens.

From January through to December we can follow the never-ending cycle of sowing growing and harvesting and the endless round of weeding digging and cultivation.  This is a book that will inspire all gardeners and be a fitting memento of these amazing gardens.Fully illustrated.
