Deepest Dorset is a full colour hardback book, by Fanny Charles and Gay Pirrie-Weir, published by Deepest Books.
It is priced £20, plus £3 for postage and packing (second class).
Clive Aslet, former editor of Country Life magazine, gave Deepest Dorset a four-star review in the Mail on Sunday, where he described it as “a bulging scrapbook of local history, folklore, crafts, recipes and topography, including contributions from the many distinguished folk to be found there, from Julian Fellowes (“Dorset has kept us sane,” he says) to Kate Adie. No wonder Dorset was voted best place to live in Britain. It’s a county of endless variety and wonder.”
Helen Stiles, editor of the Dorset magazine, says: “Best book I have ever seen on Dorset – a fabulous portrayal of true Dorset where past meets future and the present is celebrated by real people from shepherds to earls.”
Tanya Bruce-Lockhart, director of Bridport Literary Festival, says: “Deepest Dorset is both a treat and a treasure.”
Deepest Dorset is raising funds for Weldmar Hospicecare, Dorset Community Foundation, Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance, and there will be a donation to the Royal National Lifeboat Institution.
