Online Shopping: closed now, back soon

The safety of our visitors, friends and all who work with us at the RA is our highest priority. In line with the advice from Public Health England, the RA is closed temporarily; we have now taken the further decision to close our online shop in the short term, and to minimise non-essential activity.

We will be in touch once online shopping is available again, and are using the opportunity to improve the site and online experience we offer: we promise it will be better than ever! Meanwhile, if you have a query about an existing order, please contact us.

Whilst the front doors of the RA are closed, and for the time being the online shop, we will continue to offer creative inspiration to enjoy from home, and new ways of connecting. Visit us at Royal Academy of Arts, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram

Sign up to receive RA emails and find out once the online shop is open.

Thank you for your continued support. We are very much looking forward to welcoming you back to the online shop and in person again soon.

Wishing you all the very best,
The Royal Academy of Arts Team

Product story

This beautifully produced book brings together Norman Ackroyd RA, one of Britain's foremost landscape artists, and the award-winning poet Douglas Dunn, in a collaboration that takes the reader around the British coast through word and image. Ackroyd's prints - some 80 are featured in this book - are interleaved with 15 new poems by Dunn, including Working with Norman, based on their visit to the most northerly point of the British Isles.
Together, Ackroyd's atmospheric aquatints and Dunn's specially commissioned poems attest to the power of place, while reflecting the diversity of the landscape to be found along the British coastline.This hardback book is 160 pages and measures 30 x 24.5cm.
