‘THE WINTER VISITOR’

“He would tell stories of his distant land in the north. Of cold, rocky lake shores. Of water clear as glass and teeming with sparkling fish. Of the fresh blue- green weed, which grew in springtime and tasted so good that it made his tongue curl just talking about it.”

‘The Winter Visitor’ is an exciting joint project: a children’s story, written and designed by Nick Andrew, which follows three swans and their winter’s journey along a chalk stream. Tanya Hinton has created the enchanting illustrations with unique paintings on reclaimed wood (view Tanya’s work here).

A proportion from the sale of each copy will be donated to the Wessex Rivers Trust.
