A beautiful hardback book landed on my desk this afternoon. Between the Sunset and the Sea by Simon Ingram (from £13.59) was published today and offers a detailed look at sixteen of the UK’s mountains and hills through prose, history, story, and photography.

The mountains are:

  • Beinn Dearg
  • The Black Mountain
  • Cadair Idris
  • Crib Goch
  • Cnicht
  • Cross Fell
  • Schiehallion
  • Ben Loyal
  • An Teallach
  • The Assynt Hills
  • Askival
  • Ladhar Bheinn
  • Loughrigg Fell
  • Great Gable
  • Ben Macdui
  • Ben Nevis

As I flip through, I can see that the book is characterised by gorgeous typography and some excellent black and white photographs. I’ll be reading Between the Sunset and the Sea and reviewing it shortly. In the meantime you can order your copy from Amazon or Waterstones. It is available as an ebook from both stores.
