I have to admit to being a bit of an Arthur Ransome fan. Rod and Line (Cape 1929) is a classic in angling literature, but it's his Swallows and Amazons stories that float my boat.
I am enjoying re-reading them on these dark and dingy winter evenings. Check out these amazing new covers by Posti Pietari on the Vintage Classics editions - worth buying for the lovely new covers alone. Updated in such a fine way, absolutely stunning!
