A selection of work by Andrew Haslen covering a two year period when he raised three orphan hares. It forms a fascinating collage of sketches, studies and paintings inspired by them and the wild hares around him.
Also included are pictures of other animals, wild and domesticated he encountered during this period.
‘a superb collection of sketches, paintings in oil and watercolour, and linocuts, inspired by Haslen’s own tame hares , as well as the wild hares of his countryside….an outstanding book of hare illustrations… a genuine pleasure.’

‘Yes I am a grumpy old man, with good reason, and proud of it. But now comes a story that has lowered my blood pressure considerably. It too concerns a brown hare. It is a fantastic new book about the hare entitled The Winter Hare by Suffolk artist Andrew Haslen. The book raises the level of appreciation for the good things around us. It is an exceptional collection of sketches, paintings in oil and watercolour, and linocuts-a quality tome, the complete opposite of a pocketbook. And don’t be confused by the title, as there are pictures of the hare in sunlight among the bluebells as well as in snow. The hare inspiration for the book is remarkable.’
