English Journeys

Nathan Burton has designed the covers for the new Penguin 'English Journeys' series. After seeing some of the covers on Caustic Cover Critics blog I wanted to rush out and buy them all immediately however  I managed to resist the urge and just got The Clouded Mirror, Rolt's meditation on canals, the English landscape and "endless summer days of childhood", together with

Henry James's travels around the corners of England.  This series of 20 little books each of which consist of  about 100 pages, cover poetry, gardens, walks, nature, the countryside, the perfect companions to take on a journey around England, even if you just wanted to gaze at the covers.
