Evelyn Dunbar was devoted to nature and the natural world and in particular the garden, which was rooted in her affection for the Kentish landscape. That she did not seek publicity, was modest about her achievements and did not see herself as part of a clique have all contributed to the neglect of her work. Dunbar's most successful and extensive body of work dates from the Second World War when she was commissioned by the War Artists' Advisory Committee. She thus became the only woman, on a salaried basis, to record women's activities on the Home Front. She is especially known for her lyrical but unsentimental paintings of the Women's Land Army. These provide an important documentary record of women's contribution to the war effort. Like many other war artists she tended to fall out of sight of the mainstream, modernist art world following the cessation of hostilities. Marking the centenary of Dunbar's birth, this unique and authoritative biography celebrates for the first time the range of her achievement. Sumptuously illustrated, it is an important text for all those interested in twentieth-century British art and culture. Drawing extensively on interviews with family members, correspondence and newly located archives, the author focuses on Dunbar's career from illustrator and mural painter to war artist and teacher at The Ruskin School of Drawing and of Fine Art, Oxford. Evelyn Dunbar was a fine draughtswoman and her powers of observation and wry, gentle wit were well used in her illustrative work. Each chapter explores a different period in her life, revealing the variety of her work and demonstrating her profound understanding and love of the countryside.

Eric Ravilious was among the foremost of English artists to emerge between the wars - and one of the great original wood engravers. His body of work was wide-ranging and multi-faceted; in his relatively short career after he left the Royal College of Art he produced an extraordinary amount of work - murals, watercolours, wood engravings, lithographs, pottery designs for Wedgwood. Successful and enterprising as he was in these diverse fields, it was in the field of landscape painting in watercolour that Ravilious excelled. His tragic and untimely death in 1942, while on service as an Official War Artist, meant that his great promise was never fulfilled and it has been left to Helen Binyon to present this fascinating study of the artist to aworld largely unaware of his presence. The author knew Ravilious well from their student days and has been able to draw upon her intimate knowledge of this vivid and exciting artist to make this a compelling account of a genius.Eric Ravilious is introduced by Richard Morphet, former Keeper of Modern Art at the Tate Gallery, who places Ravilious in the context of modern-day appreciation of his work and describes the close relationship between Eric Ravilious and Helen Binyon, which led her to write this illuminating book.The book is lavishly illustrated with examples of Ravilious's work from his student days to his powerfully realised drawings and paintings as an Official War Artist.

Tradescant's Diary, a column of garden jottings, first appeared in the RHS magazine, The Garden, in June 1975. Hugh Johnson was its author (in addition to his being Editorial Director of the magazine) and it became a monthly fixture for the RHS's committed gardeners. Hugh's writings are filled with an eclectic mixture of topical, whimsical and humorous anecdotes and are organised to follow a gardener's monthly calendar. Under the name Tradescant's Diary, a name taken from John Tradescant, gardener to Lord Cecil at Hatfield House and to King James I, who was one of the first men to introduce plants from foreign countries to his own garden, Hugh's writings appeared in The Garden from 1975-2006, in Gardens Illustrated in 2007, and in 2008 still appear as monthly blogs through his own website (www.tradsdiary.com).
