"Bourton on the Water: An Illustrated Guide" is written by Paul Snowdon. This beautifully handrawn guide to this famous Cotswold village brings alive the history of the area dating from before Roman times, explore this village's history page by page. This is no ordinary book; it is a labour of love, a guide book to one of the Cotswold's most beautiful villages, scribed entirely by hand. In sixty three illustrations, amateur Cotswold artist Paul Snowdon guides us through the geography, history and attractions of Bourton on the Water. Through the eyes of an illustrator we see the forces which created this riverside village right through to the modern day tourist venues. All interspersed with memorable views of the river its bridges, and the wide, busy High Street. In these days of computers, digital art and word processors, a guide book created entirely by the hand of an enthusiastic artist seems wonderfully fitting in beautiful Bourton.
