IDEAL CHRISTMAS PRESENT!!
The Canal Paintings of DC 'Dusty' Miller published by Canal Book Shop.
"Dusty Miller is one of the most popular canal artists, specialising in oil paintings of evocative canal scenes - often with a working motor boat, and sometimes a motor and butty. Some would say that his portrayal of working boats is the best of any canal artist.
This superb book contains a wide selection of more than 60 of Dusty’s canal paintings. Each is accompanied by notes and anecdotes about the scene, nearly always with a photo taken in the past - usually the one on which the painting was based."
