'Paul Nash in Pictures' - Launch & Events

Exciting news! Henry Sotheran's, the wonderful fine art and antiquarian bookshop in Piccadilly, is hosting the launch of 'Paul Nash in Pictures: Landscape and Dream' on Tuesday 15 November. I'm not sure of the time yet but I imagine it will be early evening - everyone is welcome to come along and I will post full details as they emerge. (It's 6-8pm)

Other events we'll be doing to celebrate the launch of the book:

Blackwells Bookshop in Oxford has invited me to give an illustrated talk on November 24th, which will probably feature Nash and Ravilious. I'll add a link to the publicity info as it becomes available.

On 1st December I'm taking part in a Paul Nash Evening in aid of the St Bride Library off Fleet Street. Alan Powers and Brian Webb are giving talks and so is David Heathcote, author of 'A Shell Eye on Britain'. It may well sell out.

And on 6th December I'm at Foyles in Cabot Circus, Bristol, for a combined Nash/Ravilious extravaganza.

The book itself should be printed, bound and ready to go in the first week of November. Apologies if you've been looking out for it on Amazon - production has taken just a little longer than anticipated. Judging from the proofs, though, it should be gorgeous.


  1. Really looking forward to getting this book James. I wish I lived further south so I could come along to one of the events. Any plans to come north at some point?



  2. I would love to, Ben - perhaps next year sometime? If you have any suggestions for a good venue/bookshop, I'd appreciate it! Thanks

  3. James,

    Rare and Racy in Sheffield
    Scarthin Books, Cromford, Derbyshire
    Scriveners in Buxton

    How about those for starters?!



  4. They look like some good shops - I haven't been to Sheffield in years...

  5. Hi James
    Thanks for the positive feedback on my Edward Burra review at
    I'm a bit of a Paul Nash fan too (I currently have the painting above as my PC's desktop image and also reviewed the Dulwich Picture Gallery Nash show for will try to get along to your book launch next month.
