Bill Sanderson's artwork in a downloadable book app...

British artist Bill Sanderson created classic scratchboard/engraving illustrations for Felix Dennis's book  "Tales from the Woods",  a hymn to the English countryside, trees in particular.

"He's creating a new forest around his estate in Warwickshire, planting over 100,000 native broadleaf saplings a year. Some of the illustrations appeared previously in the Tree Council's magazine 'Tree News'  or other collections, but many were drawn especially for the book, and a great pleasure it was to undertake them.  The designer Rebecca Jezzard developed the shape of the final arrangement of poems and pictures." -Bill Sanderson

The book was released as an app that can be downloaded for the iPad and other tablets.
