1 Gibbs, Tooty Stocker, Betty Illustrated by: Stocker, Betty Country Folk Country Ways : Reflections of the Cotswolds
Reardon Publishing 2009 1873877927 / 9781873877920 Paperback New Book Ref OFF8 
"Country Folk Country Ways: Reflections of the Cotswolds": This book reveals through photographs and words that there is more to the Cotswolds than just its chocolate-box image of rolling hills and pretty thatched cottages. It shows that traditional craftsmen are thriving throughout the Cotswolds, from thatcher to cheesemaker, sheep-shearer to stonemason, brewer to beekeeper, dry-stonewaller to silversmith, saddler to farrier - all expertly documented. Time-honoured pursuits such as the famous Cotswold Olimpicks and the North Cotswold Hunt Meet are also featured, along with images of smallholding and working on the land which are the very essence of the English countryside. Those idyllic, atmospheric, pastoral scenes viewed at every twist and turn of the Cotswold lanes are also reproduced in this book. "Country Folk Country Ways" goes a step further than most books in that it presents the Cotswolds as a vibrant, real working environment, brimming with real people, who blend effortlessly into their beautiful surroundings. Betty Stocker was born in rural Cotswolds. Her photographs reflect her knowledge of country traditions and her love of the natural beauty of the countryside. Her work has been reproduced in numerous publications, as well as being selected for exhibition at the prestigious Trierenberg Super Circuit in Linz, Graz, Innsbruck and Vienna. Tooty Gibbs enjoyed an enviable childhood on a South Warwickshire farm and she too is a devotee of all things country. She counts it a privilege to add words to Betty's skilful, artistic and evocative pictures. It is appropriate that the Cotswolds region, with such a wealth of outstanding characteristics, should be the subject of so many publications. This is another book from Nicholas Reardon of Reardon Publishing the Cotswold Publisher.
