Share this article

A FOUNDER member of Lewes Jazz Club has written a book about his passion in life.

Colin Prescott’s ‘Brighton And All That Jazz’ is a limited edition art book with illustrations of the city and surrounding area, including Lewes.

The artist is Martin Wertheim-Gould whose mature style is evident in both the different themes, and is the binding element.

He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, and is a familiar figure at jazz events with his paintbox, artist’s materials, candle and torch.

Author and book designer Colin said: “It was very difficult to make the final selection from the hundreds of paintings available.”

The first edition of the book, due for publication next month, will be limited to 300 and purchasers’ names can be entered in a permanent register. Each book will be numbered. The price is £20.
