    Book details


Alan Spillett is recognised as one of Britain's foremost painters of trucking scenes with over 700 commissions to date. He portrays lorries from the 1960s, '70s and '80s, when he was a long-distance driver, as well as more recent trucks. His paintings are set in exact locations, capturing to the full the experiences of so many drivers. A Volvo easing its way along a Scottish lochside on a summer's day or an ERF setting out on a wet early morning from a factory in Kent - these are strongly evocative images. The paintings are accompanied by full captions describing the context of the pictures. There are longer features on aspects of trucking and truckers, photographs and miscellanea adding up to a fulfilling read. His images range widely through England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland. Alan's first book, Roadscapes, was published in 2005. The paintings in Roadscapes II have not been published in book form before and many have been prepared specially for this new book.

  • By Gizzard Puke on 19 November 2011

    This really is a must for anyone that loves old British "lorrys", pictures/prints are painted with the lorrys doing what they were designed for and did best working! Some of the things pictured in the background will bring back memories to anyone over 40 - I thoroughly recommend, only wish I could afford to buy some of the original paintings.

    Filled cover to cover with evocative images beautifully executed. The author is an artist of great skill and the book a worthy addition to any collection.
