The first of Nigel’s ‘Portrait of a County’ books lives up to its title of ‘Beautiful Devon’. With an introduction to set the scene, Devon is divided into four major areas, each of which is illustrated by a series of stunning images with explanatory and informative captions. It is excellent value at less than a tenner for a source of inspiration and wonderful pictures of a great county!
