THE RAILWAYS PAINTINGS OF DON BRECKON., Breckon, Don.  Introduction by Roger Malone.

Author Name    Breckon, Don. Introduction by Roger Malone.

Title   THE RAILWAYS PAINTINGS OF DON BRECKON.

Publisher    Greenwich Editions, London, 1995.

Seller ID   19204

80 pp, oblong 8vo (8 7/16" H x 10 1/2" D), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0862880505 Profusely illustrated with colour reproductions, b&w drawings. "Admirers of Don Breckon's unerring blend of a faultless eye for detail and an irresistible nosta lgia for the era of steam will need no prompting to acquire and treasure this beautifully produced book. It is all here: the shapely majesty of the locomotives (with the emphasis on the Great Western, but with all the Big Four well repres e n t e d ) , s e t in landscapes of a 'classical Constable calmness'; the stations, accurate in every evocative period detail; the hidden rituals of the engine shed; the porters, signalmen and passengers who were privileged to play their part in t hi s gl or io us p a no ra ma. The artist himself has provided the commentary, and Roger Malone has written an introduction full of delightful revelations of the life and work of a painter who, he says, 'reminds us of what we are missing in a worl d t ha t h as dis mis sed c har act er and individuality in favour of streamlined efficiency'." Previous owner's small stamp on front pastedown. Dust jacket has very minor rubbing, small area of delamination at bottom edge of front panel. Very G ood+ /Ve ry G ood
