The Beekeeper And The Bee

The Beekeeper and the Bee - paintings, drawings and the voices of Somerset beekeepers
ISBN: 978-0-9544394-4-6
Published by Furlong Fields Publishing

Kate Lynch spent over two years shadowing Somerset beekeepers. The book includes 40 paintings and large charcoal drawings of beekeepers at work through the seasons - from the first opening of the hive in spring, through the busy summer, with the capture of a swarm and the spinning of honey, and into busy sheds in winter, with the weaving of a traditional straw skep. There are also images of the honey bee foraging on apple blossom, crops and hedgerow flowers through the year.

The 80 page full-colour hard back book includes the voices of the beekeepers, a foreword by BBC broadcaster Martha Kearney, and 30 colour and 10 black and white illustrations.
