The Wainwrights in Colour- The Book

The Wainwrights in Colour BookThe book of the successful and unique “Wainwrights in Colour” project by Andy Beck will be published in May 2017. It will feature all of the 214 Lakeland Fells and all of the 1500+ watercolour sketches which Andy has produced to complete this body of work. Andy will detail the differences in the scenes from how they were when A.W. illustrated them in his guides.

UPDATE: The Book is to be launched on 5th May 2017. The other news is that the book will now have a one off print run of only 5000 copies, there will be no following print run. So make sure that you have registered interest in a copy. I have decided now to include ALL of the sketches from the project within the book instead of the original idea of just including most of the sketches. This has meant a major re-design of the book.

 Now 360 pages in full colour.

WIC book 2

22cm x 33cm

Printed and produced in UK

includes a 15 minute DVD on how Andy completed just one of the fells in this major undertaking.

Each fell will be featured and will be illustrated with all of the sketches and short descriptive notes.

The books will retail at £39.00

 If you haven’t done so already, make sure you register your interest in obtaining a copy of the book by emailing Because of the expense of self-publishing such a full colour book we are going to produce a standard limited run of the book of only 5000 copies. Don’t expect to find them at a discounted rate online….that will not happen.

The book is now printed and currently at the book binders. Below are two examples of how the pages will look in the book.Calf Crag The Wainwrights in Colour
