Norman Ackroyd: An Irish NotebookNorman Ackroyd: An Irish Notebook

Published by Royal Academy of Arts.
Text by Norman Ackroyd.

Norman Ackroyd (born 1938) has depicted the coastal landscapes of the British Isles for over half a century. Often traveling to remote and weather-beaten outposts, he makes watercolor sketches on various paper stocks all cut to the same size and clipped to a board so that he can work in high winds and at sea. Many of these have been reproduced in two bestselling publications, A Shetland Notebook and A Hebridean Notebook. This new group, which continues the series, includes 40 watercolors from Ackroyd's journeys down Ireland's west coast. From Malin to Mizen via the cliffs of Inishmore, the rocky outcrops of Puffin Island and the emerald depths of Roaringwater Bay, Ackroyd records the Irish coast in all its rugged beauty. The book concludes with a gazetteer by the artist, providing fascinating snippets of information about his locations and revealing the extent of Ireland's geological diversity and ancient cultural traditions.

Norman Ackroyd: A Shetland NotebookNorman Ackroyd: A Shetland Notebook

Published by Royal Academy Publications.
By Norman Ackroyd.

One of Britain's foremost printmakers, Norman Ackroyd has spent a lifetime recording the coastal landscapes of the British Isles. Gorgeously printed, A Shetland Notebook contains 39 of his vivid landscape sketches in watercolor. Made in the open air, often aboard a pitching and tossing fishing boat, these lively, spontaneous works capture the unique atmosphere of these remote and beautiful islands. The notebook's unusual format is due entirely to the artist, who uses sheets of various types of paper torn to fit into a loose-leaf binder made from two pieces of wooden picture-backing; this he tucks into his coat pocket, ready for use whenever the need arises. His engaging commentaries place each sketch in its context and describe the techniques employed to make it--as well as the day's prevailing weather conditions.

A Line in the WaterA Line in the Water

Published by Royal Academy Publications.
By Norman Ackroyd.

This beautifully produced book brings together Norman Ackroyd (b. 1938), one of Britain's foremost landscape artists, and the award-winning poet and novelist Douglas Dunn in a collaboration that takes the reader around the coastline of Britain through word and image. The journey begins with an introduction by Dunn, who looks at the rich literary and artistic tradition of artists and writers who have chronicled the variety and splendor of the British coastline. Dunn's poems find a visual response in the subtlety of Ackroyd's aquatints, which reflect the wide range of landscape to be found along the coast of Britain.
