These sketchbooks, the work of the acclaimed Scottish artist Barbara Rae (born 1943) during her three journeys toward the Northwest Passage in the depths of the Arctic Circle in 2015, 2016 and 2017, record in colorful and assured brushstrokes the icebergs, frozen bays and snowdrifts of this often hostile landscape. Polar bears and the Northern Lights make appearances, accompanied by Rae's handwritten notes in which she records her experiences and her immediate reactions to this harsh, unforgiving environment. Each page of the sketchbooks is meticulously reproduced, and the handsomely bound volume sits comfortably in the hand, making it the perfect gift for anyone interested in painting or exploration.
