"Geoffrey Hutchings published just a handful of books, all addressing the search for geographical and topographical truths, and for ways of recording and depicting these truths precisely and economically by the handswitten word and line. In addition to his contribution to the development of the teaching of field studies in Britain in the late 1940s, with its emphasis on the direct observation and interpretation of landscape, he achieved a masterly ability to 'read' and transcribe a place in a graphic composition--be it a sketch-map of a plan, a tubular text in perfect balance of brevity and detail."--Publisher's website.
