Exploring Maritime Britain and Ireland by Sail, by Jonathan Winter 2020

Out of the blue, I was delighted to be asked by an Oxford couple to illustrate a travel log of their circumnavigation of our islands.

We first met at Oxford coach station and, over coffee in its canteen, discussed the possibilities of drawing up some illustrations for a glossy book to be published as soon as possible for fund raising.  I had prepared some ideas of illustrations depicting their voyage in a light-hearted sketch form with a flowing pen line of a broad cross section of boats in action, which would contrast with the lively, coloured photography appearing throughout the clean, tight typography.  A hardbacked, square shape would look good in a cabin boat situation as well as in a book store.  This would suit the quality and artistic nature of the maritime subject matter.

these ISLANDS, founded in 2017, is a think tank amd forum for debate. They carry out research to enable well informed discussion.
The Mission for Seafarers provides practical, emotional and spiritual help to 1.5 million crewmen and women to keep trade moving and economics afloat. It was founded in Bristol in 1835
