WINDJAMMERS – The Final Story

I collected data for this book for over 30 years. It is an anthology of stories, anecdotes, poems, photographs and drawings depicting life, culture and activities in the last commercial sailing ships between the years 1906 and 1957 and is illustrated with 42 of my paintings.

It was recorded first hand from the final generation of sailing ship mariners. As there are very few still living, this book will be the last to use the words of those who experienced life in these ships.

There are 304 pages, 290 x 210 mm, printed on 120 gsm wood-free paper. There are 51 colour plates and 35 photographs printed on 128 gsm glossy art paper. The end papers, which show the routes of the last sailing ships, are Arlin over 40oz grey board, gold blocked on the spine. It has a hard cover with a 128 gsm glossy art paper dust jacket.

Books ordered through this site will be signed by me, if desired.
