Shop home, Book: Watercolour Words. Fifty Years

From £35.00



Containing 217 pages, with almost 200 watercolours, drawings, photographs and poetry, sourced from John’s lifetime portfolio, this publication spans 50 years of hair raising, humorous, intriguing and often unbelievable anecdotes, encounters and adventures. Not only does this book delve into John’s early years, his primitive rural upbringing, mentors, friends and influences, it also portrays the artist’s genuine love of the natural world and desire to record social and environmental change.

Featuring John’s many well-known patrons, including musicians, environmental scientists, a sports personality, actor, photographer and playwright, as each page is turned, the reader will not know what to expect!

This edition is limited to 400, printed on 170g fine art paper, case bound to the highest standard and includes an original dust jacket as illustrated below. The foreword has been kindly written by Sir Norman Lamb, with generous proceeds from the sales of the book in support of his mental wellbeing foundation.


"John Hurst’s Watercolour Words is a truly special memoir of life in East Anglia over the past half century. Reminiscences are vivified not only by the accompanying illustrations, but by the artist’s eye for detail with which the author records them. By turns nostalgic, irreverent and wickedly funny, each vignette in this book is a perfectly composed snapshot of a life richly lived."

Hilary Emmett, UEA
