First published in 1998, the book was chosen by the RNLI to celebrate their 175th birthday and it’s now made a welcome appearance into paperback retaining the same format (260mm x 260mm). The names featuring on the BBC Shipping forecast have gained almost mythic status and now Peter Collyer’s exquisite paintings reveal the likes of Finnistiere and German Bight in all their glory.

Synopsis

Rain Later, Good Painting the Shipping Forecast by Peter Collyer

Peter Collyer's brilliant and detailed paintings offer a series of images which help conjure up the most mythical locations, whilst his delightful idiosyncratic text provides a wealth of fascinating insights. He introduces us to the people who live and work in these areas, and passes on snippets of tantalising information to give a powerful impression of the place and convey a real feeling of being there. The beautiful paintings from his travels truly capture the spirit of these wild and isolated spots, and this new edition includes new paintings, sketches and up to date text. This is a much-loved book celebrating an iconic broadcast, and its reissue will be welcomed by Peter's many admirers.
