A Sussex Alphabet & A South Downs Alphabet | A Sussex Guide

£14.99

Two charming editions from independent publisher Snake River Press celebrating Sussex, available individually for £8.99 each.

These two complementary books provide a creative ramble across the South Downs National Park and a lasting testament to the beauties on our very own doorstep.

A Sussex Alphabet
Eleanor Farjeon is best known for the lyrics of Morning Has Broken (1931), a hymn later popularised by Cat Stevens. She celebrated a ramble across the South Downs by writing twenty-six poems. Her Sussex A to Z of witty observations first appeared in 1939 as a limited edition of 220 copies published by The Pear Tree Press. This facsimile captures the essence of the county as it was nearly one hundred years ago.

A South Downs Alphabet
Writers, artists, musicians and poets have all drawn their muse from the South Downs. Twenty-six school children and more mature wordsmiths from across the South Downs National Park celebrate this rich heritage in their own alphabet of verse. This A to Z of creativity will inspire you to cherish and appreciate the beauties on your own doorstep.
