A cel­e­bra­tion of the TRA­DI­TIONAL COUN­TIES OF ENG­LAND

Evergreen - - News -

FromNorthum­ber­land, York­shire and Cum­ber­land, through Stafford­shire, Le­ices­ter­shire and Shrop­shire, to Devon, Cornwall, Sus­sex and Kent, Eng­land’s 40 tra­di­tional coun­ties are a colour­ful patch­work, a tapestry cre­ated over hun­dreds of years by ge­og­ra­phy, his­tory and the men and women who have lived and worked within their bound­aries. This new 100- page mag­a­zine is a cel­e­bra­tion of Eng­land’s his­toric coun­ties, with a fea­ture de­voted to each one, and il­lus­trated through­out with stun­ning colour pho­tographs. De­scrip­tions of the main char­ac­ter­is­tics of the county are ac­com­pa­nied by de­tails of the ma­jor towns and cities, his­toric sites, lo­cal cus­toms and cu­riosi­ties, re­gional food and drink, and a cal­en­dar of events. There are also pan­els high­light­ing some of the fa­mous peo­ple who hail from each county and a se­ries of “county quo­ta­tions” from writ­ers and po­ets. ( 100pp, soft­back)
