About this book

Celebrates the wonderfully diverse nature of orchards in Britain. Over a two year period, artist Jonathan Latimer travelled across the country in a bid to document orchards through the seasons, from fruit growing and animal husbandary to the rich diversity of wildlife and traditional industries, like cider and perry making, that orchards sustain. His journey has taken him from a relic apple orchard in south west Scotland to the cider orchards of Somerset, from the national fruit collection at Brogdale in Kent to a neglected Victorian Estate in North Yorkshire. The pages of this beautiful book reveal artwork of breathtaking realism. There are paintings of a purely documentary nature, like a rusting tractor set against the backdrop of damson blossom in the Lyth Valley, or a young Hereford calf resting in the tranquil confines of a standard cider orchard. In his depiction of the life cycle of the codling moth, Jonathan brings great innovation and imagination to his work, presenting us with a privileged view of an unseen natural world. With thought provoking commentaries complementing paintings of astounding quality, his enthusiasm for the subject matter shines through every page. This book is a visual treat, and is destined to become a classic in its field.
