British Watercolours and Drawings | Jessica Feather

The definitive guide to the Lord Leverhulme Collection at the Lady Lever Art Gallery in Port Sunlight. This publication was 2 years in the making in terms of design and proofing. It has a complex hierarchy of typography, which entailed extensive style sheet development and many, many hours of styling. The colour images are beautifully printed with a high definition stocccato screen to avoid any loss of detail. It became a true labour of love.

“A fine collection from the eighteenth century includes works by Julius Caesar Ibbetson, Thomas Rowlandson, Francis Wheatley, John Robert Cozens, Richard Cosway, John ‘Warwick’ Smith, Francis Towne and Ozias Humphrey. Numerically, however, the strength of the collection lies in the nineteenth-century works. Jessica Feather’s meticulously researched book reveals the full glory of landscape watercolours by David Cox, Peter de Wint and J. M. W. Turner.”
