Moods of Warwickshire
Moods of Warwickshire
  • Description

Warwickshire is to Shakespeare as the Bard is to the county. Road signs welcome drivers by declaring it as “Shakespeare’s County,” and there can be no doubt that the county is defined more historically than by its landscape. As much as Warwick is the county town and Leamington Spa is even larger, despite their heritage it is Stratford upon Avon which is famous throughout the world as the birthplace of the Bard.

From its northernmost tip down to its southern extremities where there is a taste of the hill country of the Cotswolds, it is the towns, buildings and villages steeped in history which put a stamp on Warwickshire. The outstanding photography of Van Greaves in this beautiful book shows the cottages, castles, stately homes and parks, and the many intricate corners of Shakespeare’s county. Included also are some towns and villages which are now part of the West Midlands but formerly Warwickshire, which retain the stamp of “Shakespeare Country.”

Van Greaves’ first book for Halsgrove was Portrait of Birmingham, published in 2004. He has since produced Moods of Shropshire and The Marches and Moods of Worcestershire & Elgar Country in 2005. Van Greaves’ previous illustrated books include Discovering The Pennines, Snowdonia to The Gower, with John Gillham, and he has contributed to several more, including Classic Walks and High Mountains of Britain & Ireland.

ISBN 978 1 84114 530 3, hardback, 230x214mm, 144 pages. Published May 2007.
