Turner in the North by David Hill

For this beautifully illustrated book, David Hill has photographed many of the actual sites J. M. W. Turner sketched two hundred years ago while touring the north of England. Hill's photographs, Turner's first sketches (many previously unpublished), and the finished oils and watercolors that derived from them, together provide an intriguing look at the whole of Turner's creative process as well as the quality and intensity of his travel experience.
