Rain Later Good is the Award winning story of Peter Collyer's extraordinary journey around the Shipping Forecast areas and has been a bestseller since first publication. The Artist's brilliant and detailed paintings reproduced actual size, offer a series of images which help conjure up the moth mythical locations, while his delightfully idiosyncratic text provides a wealth of fascinating insights. He introduces us to the people who live and work in these areas, and passes on snippets of tantalizing information to give powerful impression of the place and convey a real feeling of being there. The beautiful paintings which come from Peter Collyer's travels truly capture the spirit of these wild and isolated spots.

Sailing Today a beautifully-produced tour of the sea areas in the UK Shipping Forecast. ...such a nice concept, and so well executed The Telegraph
