Peak District Address Book
Peak District Address Book
  • Description
  • Related

The 555 square miles (1438 square km) of the Peak District National Park, the first in the country to be so designated way back in 1951, lie at the southern end of the Pennines and form a marked transition between the soft green lowlands and the harsh moorland uplands. Surrounded by the conurbations of Manchester, Sheffield and the Midlands, itís not surprising that the park is the most popular in the UK.

In this varied landscape each season has its own beauty. This ranges from the colourful display of wild flowers during springtime; the purple-clad heather moors in high summer; the golden autumnal colours of the trees below the eastern edges; to the Arctic-like snowy wastes of the high lands in winter.

You will find some pictures in this book with azure skies and bright sunshine, but the photographer, the masterly Jerry Rawson, prefers the impact of dramatic light, stormy conditions and especially around dawn and dusk when the light can be a revelation transforming the mundane landscape into something quite sublime; capturing a fleeting moment of perfection.

Address books tend to be well used and have a long life. Along with important contact details, they keep track of the userís friends and acquaintances, tracing their lives over time and from place to place. And, if properly attended to, an address book eventually becomes a journal in itself, and an attractive and permanent keepsake. Whether bought as a gift or for personal use, this Peak District Address Book, with its superb pictorial reminders of the national park, will provide years of pleasure.
