The  Book of Tides 

as featured in

The event will take place on

Saturday 29th October at 3pm

at Walton & Frinton Yacht Club

William’s book is an idiosyncratic, richly illustrated guide to Britain’s rivers, seas and shores, for everyone who loves the water and the natural world.

Inspired by his own witnessing of the power of the sea through travelling around Britain’s coastline in a panel van with his young family, he tells the story of the cycles of the sea and how it imperceptibly but crucially shapes our actions, and has shaped our landscape for millenia.

William combines a lyrical, passionate narrative with graphically beautiful renderings of the main forms of water which affect Britain: Rip, Rapids, Swell, Stream, Tide, Wave, Whirlpool, Tsunami. The Book of Tides is a book for all of us who feel the pull of the sea and the tug of the tide.

Tickets are £5 each and redeemable against a copy of The Book of Tides @ £20

William’s beautiful Tidal Compass Prints, an example of which can be seen in our window, will also be available unframed @ £60. 

These can be personalised by William to make the perfect Christmas present together with the book and William will take orders on the day.
