CURLEW COAST – Diversions on Maritime Suffolk by Judith Ellis


Have you ever wondered how you tell a brig from a barque? Or a sprat from a sardine? How salt is made and when Trinity House was founded? The answers to some of these questions and much more will be found within the pages of this book. Red herrings appear throughout the book flagging up interesting facts and generally look cheerful.

SKU: ISBN 9781999783938 Category:


Shortlisted for the Amberley Press Publishing Prize in 2017, Curlew Coast is the author’s second book about East Anglia’s maritime past. Using the coastal towns of Suffolk as a framework, the book explores a diversity of subjects from rope-making to ship burials and from coastal erosion to the early navigators.

Illustrated throughout with the author’s sketches, Curlew Coast covers the period from when the Anglo-Saxons first sailed up the East Anglian rivers, to the age of the railway when the engine began to take over from sail. The book is as much a piece of design as it is about text and has been edited by Jenny Wilson and designed by Niki Medlik, both of whom held senior posts at Thames and Hudson for many years.
