The Last Great Adventure of Sir Peter Blake
This large-format hardback follows the late Sir Peter Blake on his last, ill-fated voyage on the polar exploration yacht Seamaster. It tracks the voyage while paying homage to an extraordinary man. The Seamaster voyage began in New Zealand and descended to 70 degrees South in the icy waters of Antarctica. It then headed north to the rain forests of the Amazon where it eventually sailed 1,800 km up the Amazon River. Blake was murdered at the river mouth. The text of the book is drawn from the logbooks kept by Blake, edited by Alan Sefton. The illustrations consist of stunning colour images from the ship's photographers, and the paintings are by Lady Pippa Blake who was on board during part of the Amazon section.
