The Wind In The Willows

Over the past 3 months, and in-between other jobs, I have been working on a collection of 30 watercolour illustrations for 'The Wind In The Willows', to be published by Guomai in China.

It's a dream job for me, Kenneth Grahame's book has been a rich source of inspiration over the years. I just wish I had more time available to me to produce large illustrations instead of mainly spots. I think I will keep adding to this image bank in the hope I can get another book published in the future containing even more artwork.

When do you expect The Wind in the Willows to be available for purchase?

Hi Christine

It was going to be printed this month but we have been adding more artwork to the book. I can only guess it will be available late Summer, early Autumn!? Rest assured I will post on my blog when it is up for grabs!

Hi Chris,

Hi Martin

Your message has prompted me to get up to date on the publication of the book. I haven't heard anything from the publisher but I did find this through their website - https://detail.tmall.com/item.htm?spm=a1z10.3-b.w4011-11778224468.74.72299c52M4je7s&id=558097280519&rn=42dae64f283b79c5ffd779b8a3cc9e5b&abbucket=15

I can only assume it is now for sale, and under £6.00 too.
