England on Fire: A Visual Journey Through Albion's Psychic Landscape is a book about English art like no other, with depictions of ancient trackways, chalk carvings and standing stones, streets set ablaze in protest, occult dreams and psychedelic prophecies, with artists ranging from JMW Turner and William Blake to Derek Jarman and Paula Rego.

Sexy, savage and daring, author Zoe Gilbert tracks Herne the hunter through space and time as his beloved forest is subsumed by urban sprawl.
