A message from Artemis Cooper who is preparing Vol Three – The Broken Road – with Colin Thubron.
Here is the art work for ‘The Broken Road’, the final volume of Paddy’s great walk which comes out on 12 September… it is by Ed Kluz, a great choice of artist by John Murray. Ed is very much in the English pastoral and Romantic tradition, like John Craxton who did all the covers for Paddy’s books. I know Paddy would have LOVED it.
Available to pre-order from Amazon The Broken Road: From the Iron Gates to Mount Athos
It looks great – very reminiscent of the covers of ‘Mani’ and ‘Roumeli’. Bring on September!
After all these years finally a date for the publication of (the almost mythical) Volume Three
I love the cover art.
The road may be broken, but John Craxton’s tradition of great jackets for Paddy’s books lives on. This is a fine tribute by Ed Kluz to both of them.
Looks great. 12 September will be a memorable day. Looking forward with much anticipation. Good luck to Artemis and Colin with all that remains to be done.
Love that cover. So in keeping with the style of the others. Can’t wait to own a copy – preferably signed by Artemis Cooper and Colin Thubron!
I love it-and I hope my earlier comment here didn’t put pressure on you to reveal what you had shown us in Oxford.
It sits quite nicely with John Craxton’s work. Do we know the artist?
From Artemis … “it is by Ed Kluz, a great choice of artist by John Murray. Ed is very much in the English pastoral and Romantic tradition, like John Craxton who did all the covers for Paddy’s books. I know Paddy would have LOVED it”
